“Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach”
The Lake District 24 Peak Challenge is a two day challenge over a walking distance of 31 miles which will push your mental and physical strength to the limit.
The 24 Peaks is designed to involve fairly strenuous exercise and for your own safety you must be aware of this and consider carefully whether your general level of fitness, or any particular illness or ailment prevents you from participation.
This is a tough challenge that will test your endurance and strength. Set in the stunningly beautiful Lake District you will climb 24 peaks in 24 hours, encountering difficult terrain, lengthy ascents and steep descents along the way.
Day 2: Another early start for day 2, this time traversing the long ridge above Ambleside, first climbing Red Screes and following the ridge north, crossing Fairfield to eventually climb Helvellyn, the third highest mountain in England.
