Lake District 10 Peaks Challenge

The Lake District 10 Peaks Challenge is a fore-shortened version of the 2 day Lake District 24 Peaks Team Challenge and is based on day 1 of that event.

The 10 Peaks is designed to involve fairly strenuous exercise and for your own safety you must be aware of this and consider carefully whether your general level of fitness, or any particular illness or ailment prevents you from participation. However, we will provide you with a mountain fitness training programme and by following this anyone in reasonable health will be able to successfully complete the challenge.

This is a tough challenge that will test your endurance and strength. Set in the stunningly beautiful Lake District you will climb 10 peaks within 24 hours, encountering difficult terrain, lengthy descents and steep ascents along the way.

Your mental and physical strength will be tested to the max, and encouragement within the team is essential.

Why not challenge yourself and a team of colleagues with this exciting 10 Peaks event which provides an excellent platform for both team building and/or charity fundraising.
