Superb undulating course, run on traffic free, wide, well surfaced (not tarmac) man-made forest trails with fantastic views (normal road shoes are adequate).

Welcome to The 2015 Grizedale Trail Race.
RELUCTANTLY WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE RACE ON THE 19TH APRIL. ENTRIES REACHED 35 BUT WE NEEDED 50 TO BREAK EVEN. THE SURPLUS AFTER RACE EXPENITURE HAS ALWAYS BEEN GIVEN TO CHARITIES CLOSE TO THE ORGANISERS INTRESTS. INITIALLY TO THE TERENCE HIGGINS TRUST, THEN THE BENDRIGG TRUST AND LATTERLY TO THE ANTHONY NOLAN TRUST WHO LAST YEAR RECIEVED OVER £1000.
THE RACE WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY THE 27TH OF SEPTEMBER INSTEAD.
PRE-ENTRIES WILL BE REFUNDED UNLESS YOU REQUEST A TRANSFER TO THE NEW DATE.
OUR SINCERE APOLOGIES
In the event of very bad weather we will use Bogle Crag to the South and the adjacent forest road for parking. Bogle Crag is 1km South of Registration. There is an off road walking route from Bogle Crag but this meanders its way through the wood adjacent to the road. If you walk on the road please be careful as cars and bicycles are frequent and often too fast.
On your way to Bogle Crag you might wish to drop off family/friends at the main car park. We are informed that if you enter the Car Park and leave within 10 minutes the APNR system will cancel your number plate.
The 2015 event will be supporting Anthony Nolan

I have just run the above race and would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you and well done!
I have been running for 20 years and I have got to say that was one of the most enjoyable races I have ever taken part in.
You did warn people on the lead up to the race about the weather conditions which then gave people the choice to run or not. I must admit I was a bit wary but glad I took the decision to run.
The scenery was spectacular, straight out of Narnia, everyone was very friendly and my friend and myself managed to stay upright! We were at the very end but that didn't matter to us we just had such a fantastic time.
Once again thank you
Hi Grizedale 10
Dear Britta, Helen and
Thank you for all your
hard work it really was appreciated.
Just wanted to thank all of the marshalls, organisers and other runners that turned up to make this event happen.
I had a 260 mile round trip to attend the race today and it was certainly worth it.
It was spectacular. The views were amazing and it was so much fun running in the snow.
Just wish I had taken my camera along!
Just wanted to say thank you for carrying on with todays race , it was superb and, despite bringing up the rear would not have missed it for anything!
The 2015 event will be again supporting Anthony Nolan. In 2014 over £1000 was raised for the charity from event surpluses. Thank you.
