Lakeland Trails with inov-8 'Stay at Home Staveley', Saturday 9th May 2020

Please check out Final Details from our Raceday page.

We can’t get together in person at the moment but the trails are waiting for our return. In the meantime we’d love to get together virtually and raise some money for charity in the process. Saturday 9th May would have been our Staveley event and it’s a special one because it takes place in the backyard of our partners, inov-8. So Lakeland Trails and inov-8 would like to invite you to take part in ‘Stay at Home Staveley’, your own virtual event, instead.

Starting and finishing at your front (or maybe back) door, the Stay at Home Staveley courses follow whichever route you choose (please remember to be responsible and obey government guidelines)! You'll be virtually taking part alongside two-times Lakeland Trails Ultra winner Damian Hall and trail-running legend Nicky Spinks, both inov-8 ambassadors!

Fundraising

We’re raising money for two important local charities:

*Lake District Calvert Trust, a residential outdoor activity centre based in Bassenthwaite, which welcomes guests with sensory, learning and physical disabilities so that they can enjoy the benefits of outdoor activities in a safe and accessible, yet challenging environment. The Calvert Trust are a small charity who, like many small charities at the moment, are likely to be hard hit. If you’ve done our Keswick event you’ll have run past their centre, so we feel a real link with them and would love to support them.

*Cumbria Covid-19 Response Fund, which has been set up by Cumbria Community Foundation to help charitable groups deal with emerging issues from Coronavirus. Cumbria Covid-19 Response Fund is also a small campaign, set up to help local people at this time of need.

Both charities will really appreciate any donations you can make. You can donate on our Fundraising page.

Prizes

We've got some fantastic prizes for the most innovative photos- check out the Race Day page for further information. You can also download your Race Number from there too.
