If you feel able to make a donation to the Jack Bloor Fund, however small, this would be most appreciated. Donations can be made via GoFundMe

Despite so many endeavours being on hold, we have still been providing grants to young people engaging in outdoor adventure sports. For a summary of awards since the 2019 race click here

We continue to welcome applications and will be promoting this opportunity further as outdoor adventure gets going again. Please help spread the word. 

Thank you and stay safe. From the Trustees of the Jack Bloor Memorial Fund. 


All monies from the Jack Bloor Races go to the Jack Bloor Memorial Fund (more info here), however we wish to raise additional sums to support more of the many quality applications received by the Fund each year.
