Evolving from Ambleside area sporting events and fairs dating back to the 17th Century, the modern Ambleside Sports became organized in 1886. The current form of the sports was established following the end of World War 2 in 1946.
Today Ambleside Sports is one of the most well known and well attended countryside sports fairs in Cumbria. Events include the fell & Guide Races, Hound railing, Children’s Races, Grass Track Cycling, Track Races and the famous Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling.
If you are not taking part in any of the events do not worry as there are plenty of other things to do. There will be food courts selling both traditional and exotic foods, bars, trade stands and children’s rides, games and a climbing wall.
A great day out.
