Our mission

To provide a unique trail running race experience for all levels of runner

Our Values



We believe in the mental & physical benefits of adventure. For this reason we've chosen the stunning Lake District with incredible trail running opportunities & lush mountain views.



We believe in equal opportunities for all runners. Beginner or expert trail runner, male or female - everyone is welcome.



We strive to create sustainable environments where people & places live in harmony. We will award unique, eco wooden medals to runners. Our event is also cup-less & we will make contributions to local charities to help preserve the longevity of the area.



We welcome families to attend the event & celebrate the joy of trail running together. With races, 'festival themed’ sports expo, yoga & wild swimming, there is lots to enjoy!



Perhaps trail running in the Lake District is new for you? You're looking to challenge yourself, create lasting memories & be part of a growing community. We're committed to creating a unique & awesome trail running experience for everyone.

How it all started

Our founders Ed & David met at the Conti Thunder Run & bonded over a love of the trails! David, owner of Peakrunners a brand who hosts trail races across the Peak District has teamed up with Ed, founder of EVOSSI. A running brand who sell sports apparel & host adventurous trips around the world.

Together, they led an adventure running trip to Snowdonia which was a huge success. The idea for Trail Pursuit was yet to reveal itself. Then, Ed invited David onto his podcast The EVOSSI Explore Show & had the idea for a collaborative sports event at the end of it.

After a goodnights sleep & a stellar brainstorm session, Trail Pursuit was born! Ed & David would combine their skillsets around race directing, building communities & special experiences to create a unique event in the glorious Lake District.
