Running brand inov-8 has launched a competition for seven lucky winners to scoop an all-expenses-paid trip to the Lake District, which is acclaimed as the home of inov-8 and UK trail running.

The GET A GRIP COMPETITION offers runners the opportunity to win a five-day experience (from June 30 to July 4, 2017) that money can’t buy.

Winners will:

  • Learn tricks of the trails from international inov-8 athletes and ambassadors
  • Gain a unique insight into the inner workings of a multi-award-winning brand
  • Be the first to test innovative new running products in footwear, apparel and equipment.

The seven winners will also form #TeamGetAGrip and take part in the Skiddaw Fell Race. This classic nine-mile Lake District event 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 above, hear stories from those who have run incredible record times over their summits and, of course, get out to experience the network of trails for themselves.

Michael Price, the inov-8 marketing and product director, says: “From Keswick to Kendal and in between, inov-8’s iconic footprints have been etched into the Lake District trails 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 24-hour Bob Graham Round.

“Now we’re offering seven lucky winners the chance to come and join us at the home of inov-8 and UK trail running. For the competition winners, this will be a unique and unforgettable experience in one of the world’s most incredible running environments.”
