Lake District Challenge

Walk, jog or run the Lake District Challenge

Take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge suitable for all experience levels and you’ll get support and hospitality all the way.

The challenge begins in Kendal. From there it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside and a half way point by Lake Windermere. With stunning views en route and scenery including forest and nature reserves, your momentous journey will end with a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp.

As well as the 100km full challenge, half and quarter options are available.

Making every day count for local children
We can only continue providing care, support, fun and laughter for local life limited and life threatened children with your support.
Did you know? When you fundraise £100 it could pay for four children to have a half hour physiotherapy session. Our specialist physiotherapists make sessions enjoyable for children while ensuring they get real benefits, including pain relief, improving stiff muscles and helping with breathing problems.
