Challenge Events

We support a number of local challenge events. Some are organised by our team, primarily to raise funds for the team. Others are supported by the team in a number of different ways. As a team we are happy to be involved in these events, all of which encourage people to take advantage of the great outdoors environment in our area.


Grin And Bear It Fell Race

The Grin and Bear It is a 25km fell race organised by the team. Over recent years it has become established as a well liked fell race by the fell-running community. It raises around £1,800 anually for the team. More details of the race can be found on the Grin And Bear It Website.

Trigger Fell Race

The Trigger is a 25 mile fell race that goes from Marsden Cricket Club to Edale via a number of trig points. The race is organised by a number of local runners including Nicky Spinks. The team provide checkpoint marshaling as well as race safety and medical cover. The organisers generously donate any surplus funds from the race to the team. More details are available on the Trigger Website.

Steel City Downhill MTB Race

The team has been involved in providing medical cover for this popular event over the past few years. The nature of the event means that there will always be a number of minor injuries and potentially more serious ones. In return for access to the team’s specialist trauma care capabilities, the organisers make a donation to the team.
