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.

You can choose a 5.7k, 10k or 17k run or you could join the 10k Nordic Walk.
