We were lucky to have co-founder of The Green Runners and top inov-8 ambassador Damian Hall take part in our Series' Finale in Ullswater. We were humbled and proud of what he had to say afterwards on social media.

"Lakeland Trails do good things. They're a Cumbrian company using local businesses wherever possible. They swapped from a dairy to a vegan ice cream vendor (saving emissions in several ways), have reduced bib/timing waste, T-shirt waste (and are planting trees), no water bottles and have incentivised public transport and car-pooling. (which seemed to be actually working 👌).

Plus they simply put on brill events. This one had an 80s theme, so I hoped my faux-hawk counted.

Only had enough speed in my tired old legs for 4th place (1st old git). But that's where I always finish nowadays and fittingly I was also united with my @tordesgeants Fourth Place Trophy (as an Arsenal fan I know the value of that)"

We don't claim to do everything we can be to make our events more sustainable but we're doing our best to make a difference and to keep making small steps. It's great that our efforts are being noticed.
