Run at Grasmere, Cumbria

The view at Allan Bank and Grasmere, Cumbria

There are so many trails in the Lake District that for beginners it can be hard to know where to start. Pop into the Grasmere shop and information centre for tips and the full details of our routes.

‘If you haven’t got trail running shoes the flat run around Grasmere lakeshore is the one for you. For runners who do have the right shoes there are loads of beautiful trails to explore. Don’t let the hilly nature of this area put you off. Beginners can still enjoy the breath-taking views by walking uphill and jogging down dale.
‘If you’re starting to run in the dark days of January it can be nice to have a target to work towards. Join us for our Grasmere Gallop, in June: an inclusive running event for all abilities.’
- David A, trail runner and staff member at Grasmere
