Grass Routes Trail Running and Outdoor Fitness - Breaking down barriers!

About our group

Grass Routes is a community interest company, this means we are dedicated to putting our profits back into the community to help more people access trail running and outdoor fitness.

We work with the local community in Hastings and the surrounding area to understand, address and break down the barriers different people experience in accessing outdoor exercise. This may be financial help towards kit or transport costs, providing interpreters, same gender or low number groups, ensuring we have diverse run leaders, free sessions or sessions timed to fit around peoples childcare restraints.

We run weekly dedicated trail running and conditioning groups open to all, and focused sessions for people who face barriers, this may include but is not limited to refugees and immigrants, BAME, people who have suffered abuse, LGBTQ individuals and those with physical or intellectual disabilities.
