We believe in exploration, community & diversity - join us for the adventure!
To provide a unique trail running race experience for all levels of runner
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.
A trail running race experience for people who love the great outdoors.
Held in the stunning Lake District and hosted by EVOSSI & Peakrunners, harnessing our passion to explore new places & deliver an incredible trail running experience.
We offer distances to challenge you whether experienced or new to the trails!
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.
Brathay Hall provides a stunning event centre for Trail Pursuit. This Georgian country house overlooks the northern shore of Windermere with a backdrop of the Lake District fells.
Address: Brathay Hall, Ambleside, LA22 0HP
We have chosen to support Brathay Trust, a charity who improve the lives of young people by inspiring them to engage positively in the outdoors & their communities.
As Ambassadors for movement, we believe Trail Pursuit can be a driving force in helping to educate young people to the benefits of time spent outside, both mentally & physically.
We’ll make sure your race day is the most unique experience ever!
