OUR FAVOURITE 2014 TRAIL RACES

To mark the arrival of the new range of Inov-8 clothing and footwear we asked our staff for their favorite off road, fell and trail races - here's what they came back with...

Trail running

The TrailMan Trail Run
22/02/2014
Tunbridge Wells, Kent


Two distances, both include some proper hills (beware the infamous Big Dipper), mud, roots… and make sure you save something for 'The Wall', a leg-sapping ramp back up to the line where you'll likely collapse in a heap on the floor. Not for the faint hearted. 6km or 13 km options.

Silva 10 Trail Series, Coniston

The Lake District


The last in the inagural SILVA 10 series is in the shadow of the Old Man himself... Coniston. A great area to explore and admire whilst running!.
