Take on England’s finest countryside

New for 2021 – walk, jog or run the Lake District Challenge while raising funds for St Christopher’s. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge – suitable for all experience levels – and you will get the best support and hospitality all the way.

Our Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves – with some stunning views along the way – before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey. Push yourself further – 100km full Challenge, with half and quarter options also available.
