Race Description

The 10 Peaks Challenge is a non-stop hike/ run over the 10 highest peaks in The Lake District. The course covers approximately 73 kilometres with over 5,600 metres of ascent. The dramatic landscape of The Lakes provides a memorable back drop for a day that you won’t forget.

The 10 Peaks is a charity event and open to anyone over 18 who is fit, healthy and mad enough to attempt it! The 2010 event saw 52 people, including armed forces, adventure racers, fell runners, triathletes, ultra distance and elite marathon runners take on the challenge. No one completed the course. The 2011 event was blessed with much better weather and nearly half of the starters completed all 10 peaks. Each participant is responsible for their own navigation (on foot) from peak to peak and must carry a map and compass or GPS, and know how to use them.
