Lakes 4 Peaks Challenge

Raise money for Racing Welfare with a challenging 2-day trek in the beautiful Lake District

14th June 2019

Explore the UK’s Lake District and summit the four highest peaks in England. The perfect trek for those who want to achieve their first multi-peak challenge with stunning views and mountain landscapes every step of the way.

The trek begins at Seathwaite, from where we tackle Scafell and Scafell Pike via the Corridor route. This is the toughest part of the challenge and involves steep ascents and rugged terrain.

The next day our start point is Thirlmere and from where we will ascend Helvellyn. This is a short but steep ascent with some minor scrambling.  On return to Thirlmere we will transfer to Millbeck where we will ascend our final peak, Skiddaw.

Stamina and determination are a must on this fantastic but strenuous challenge; although it involves some tough trekking, the stunning views of the Lake District will be with us all the way and the close proximity of the four peaks means that it’s possible to do all this in one great weekend!
