The Lake District Challenge

Begin your challenge in Kendal, setting off towards a couple of tough hills in Ambleside, as you make your way to the half way point by Lake Windermere. You'll pass forests and nature reserves - with some beautiful views enroute - before enjoying a well-deserved rest.

The Full 100km event can be done as a continuous challenge or over 2 days, with the option to camp at the halfway point. If you were looking for a shorter distance, take on a 51km, 49km or 28km routes, following trails that will take you past some of the UK’s best views.

"The toughest and most life affirming walk of my life which will provide memories me and my walking partner will never forget!"

Fundraising ideas

GIF with Ready Steady Go flashing

As the world is changing daily, so is the way people are fundraising and asking for sponsorship. We’re here to help you think of fundraising in a different and safe way during this time.

Did you know… Donations made via Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving are paid to the NSPCC once a week. This means that we can put every donation to use immediately – so we can continue to be there for children.

Here is our handy guide to how you might reach your target during lockdown (and have fun at the same time!)

  • Online pub quiz - £100
    You don’t need to be at your local to hold a quiz, get online and use a video conference platform to host one instead. Ask individuals to donate in return for taking part. 
  • Hold an online class - £100
    You may be a teacher, fancy yourself as a fitness guru or can teach a musical instrument. If not why not reach out to friends and family to host a class on your behalf.
  • Have a clear out - £150
    Having a big sort out is great during anytime of the year. Sell your unwanted clothes and accessories online to rack up the cash.
