A one day event undertaking 10 of the best peaks in the Lakes

The Lake District 10 Peaks Challenge is a shortened version of our Lake District 24 Peaks Challenge and follows the same route that is done on day 1 of this 2 day event. Passing through and over some of the most picturesque valleys in the region the walk offers spectacular mountain views along some of the quieter routes.

The 10 Peaks is a serious challegne event designed to involve fairly strenuous and prolonged exercise over a long days walking and should only be undertaken by those with good levels of fitness or those with some previous mountain walking experience.

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

Your mental and physical stamina will be tested to the max!

Why not challenge yourself and a team of colleagues with this exciting 10 Peaks event and raise money for your favourite charity.
