This exciting, tough but ultimately rewarding challenge will have you trekking across some of the highest peaks in England over the course of a day.
The Lake District Mountain Challenge sees participants climb the highest peak in England (Scafell Pike 978m) as well as some of the other most prominent mountains in the Lake District. The total ascent is over 2000 metres.
The challenge crosses rugged mountain terrain; you will be faced with steep climbs, descents and crossing boulder fields. Taking part in this event is a huge personal achievement regardless of the total number of peaks completed by each individual. It is a challenge that can attract a lot of sponsorship and is great for team bonding and promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace.
