Lakeland Trails Need You!

Posted in Dishing the Dirt by Matt Ward on Wed 06 Jun '12


Graham Patten’s series of trail races across the Lake District go from strength-to-strength, and after 9 years the bulging events company are looking for an events and operations manager…

We suspect the Lakeland events company won’t take long to find the right person for a job that would suit many a trail runner with events experience.

Graham states:

“It’s nine years ago that I first started the Lakeland Trails, and who’d have thought that the races would become some of the biggest and most inspirational sporting events in the Lake District.

“We now have a fantastic opportunity for a full time Events & Operations Manager to join our small team, as we look to increase our events portfolio next year. We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual with event experience, so if you want to live the dream and work in the Lake District, please get in touch”.

    In these days of austerity, I am amazed how successful these races are, costing, as they do, three or four times your typical fell race or LDWA Challenge Event (which provide food en route and at the finish).
