New for 2017 we are launching our biggest-ever competition with seven lucky winners set to scoop an all-expenses-paid trip to the Lake District - the home of inov-8 and UK trail running.
The GET A GRIP COMPETITION provides runners with the opportunity to win a five-day experience (June 30th – July 4th) that money can’t buy. Winners will learn tricks of the trails from international inov-8 athletes and high-profile ambassadors, gain a unique insight into the inner workings of a multi-award-winning brand and be among the first to test innovative new running products in footwear, apparel and equipment.
The lucky seven, who will form TEAM GET A GRIP, will also have the opportunity to take part in the Skiddaw Fell Race – a classic nine-mile Lake District event which combines both trail and fell running on the slopes of one of England’s highest peaks.
Staying in the heart of the Lake District, winners will learn all about the fells and mountains that tower high above, hear stories from those who’ve run incredible record times over their summits and, of course, get out to experience the network of thrilling trails for themselves.
So, what are you waiting for? Enter the GET A GRIP COMPETITION here and we could soon be welcoming you to one of the best trail running playgrounds in the world.
THE LAKE DISTRICT
From Keswick to Kendal and all in between, our iconic footprints have been gracing these trails ever since 2003. By delivering the very best in grip, we’ve become the shoe of choice for those tackling everything from traditional Lake District fell and trail races to the iconic 24-hour Bob Graham Round.
In 2016, fell running in the Lake District shot to international prominence when ultra runner Nicky Spinks became the fastest person to complete an incredible Double Bob Graham Round – a run of 132 miles, including 54,000ft of ascent, over 84 Lake District summits. inov-8 ambassador Nicky, a 49-year-old cancer survivor, completed the epic challenge in 45 hours and 30 minutes. Watch the award-winning RUN FOREVER - the inspirational film of Nicky’s Double Bob Graham Round.
