Grasmere Gallop Trail Run 2017

Winners at the Grasmere Gallop
Published : 09 Jun 2017

This year’s Grasmere Gallop took place on Saturday 3 June amidst the spectacular surroundings of Grasmere village and Rydal Water. The trail running event saw 870 people take part over several races – two trail runs, a fun run, Nordic walking, as well as a Teddy Run for under-5s. The event was a great success, raising hundreds of pounds which will go towards supporting red squirrel conservation in Grasmere.
