Lake District 5 Peaks Challenge Want to challenge yourself on the 5 peaks? Want to challenge yourself whilst taking in some beautiful scenery? This is the trek for you! This challenge runs over just one day, but with five peaks to tackle it’s certainly no walk in the park! Prepare for an exhausting but energising journey through the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Lake District, as you venture across 14 miles and tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks, including its highest – Scafell Pike. What you need to know Registration fee: £50 Minimum fundraising target: £275 Day 1: The Prep The adventure begins in the late afternoon at our hostel, in the heart of the Lake District. You will need to arrive by 8pm to meet your leaders for the full safety briefing and get to know the rest of the team. Day 2: The Trek! Rise and shine for breakfast and a bright and breezy start! From the Old Dungeon Ghyll we head North West across the moorland towards the first peaks of the day: Crinkle Crags and Bow Fell. After a short pit stop for lunch, the next challenge beckons. Esk Pike represents the halfway mark and from its stony summit the view stretches across the Scafells, Derwent Water and part of Windermere. Finally, our ultimate destination is in sight: the craggy peak of Scafell itself. There is, however, the small matter of the daunting field of boulders in between, as well as a steep climb to the summit of England’s highest mountain at 978m. There’s plenty of time to celebrate this impressive achievement from up high, before we return to our starting point via a more direct route. Whats included: Accommodation during the challenge (usually in twin share) Drinking water on challenge days Breakfast and a packed lunch whilst on the trek. Full back-up support including first-aid qualified staff and first-aid supplies Fundraising help and ideas from our dedicated events team A Lepra branded T-shirt Your efforts will change lives Each day more than 600 people are diagnosed and start treatment for leprosy – over 50 will be children. However, millions more are living undiagnosed with the disease today, leading to increasing damage the longer it’s left. The funds you raise will provide children, women and men with the treatment they need to improve their lives, access healthcare and reduce poverty and stigma.
