Lake District 5 Peaks Challenge


A challenging adventure in the heart of the UNESCO World heritage site, the Lake District 5 Peaks runs over just one day. You will venture across 14 miles (22km) and tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks, including its highest – Scafell Pike.

Fully supported by qualified mountain leaders, this will be no walk in the park! It will be an energising and unforgettable trek you won't forget in a hurry. Starting from the Old Dungeon Ghyll you will head north-west across the moorland towards the first peaks of the day: Rossett Pike. These are the southern fells of Wainwright country, which offer some of the finest hill-walking in England.

After a short pit stop, the next challenge beckons, Allen Crags. From its stony summit the view stretches across the Scafells and Derwent Water. Only three peaks remain, but they are the toughest of the day so require everyone to be focussed and determined!

Next is the highlight of the day, 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. Ringed on all sides by crags, the expansive views take in Great End and Helvellyn to the north, Crinkle Crags and Windermere to the south-east and, on a clear day, the Isle of Man and the Scottish hills to the west.

The return route takes you over the iconic peaks of Ill Crag and Great End before descending back down into the Langdale valley in time to celebrate your achievement.

So if this sounds like the challenge for you, sign up today and help us to continue supporting cancer patients across Merseyside, Cheshire, the Isle of Man and beyond.
