Grasmere Gallop 2016
Challenge yourself to a scenic trail run.
This year’s Grasmere Gallop takes place on Saturday 4 June amidst the spectacular surroundings of Grasmere village and Rydal Water. Fast gaining a reputation as one of the friendliest trail races in the Lakes, each year we see more and more first-time runners, Nordic walkers and families racing alongside seasoned fell-runners.
Run for the reds – you would be nuts not to!
We have always put the money raised by the Grasmere Gallop to good use, investing it back into our conservation work in the Grasmere and Rydal area. This year, we’re on a mission to save Grasmere’s red squirrels. Find out why →
In partnership with…
This year, for the first time, we’re teaming up with Cotswold Outdoor. They share our passion for the great outdoors and their support will make a huge difference in helping us to raise money for great conservation work in Grasmere.
