Day 1, Fri 23 Jun 2017

Day 1: Arrival and Briefing

We will arrive in the evening at our hostel in Grasmere. After checking-in we will meet our team in time for an introduction and briefing about the event. After this it’s time for an early night before the challenge begins.

Please note, dinner is not included on this first evening.


Day 2, Sat 24 Jun 2017

The Challenge begins!

After an early start the two teams will go their separate ways. Our challenge is to make it to the finish by 7am the following morning, a full 24 hours away!

Each team will have in front of them over 40 miles of stunning Lake District countryside. The route is split into two sections, both of which start and finish at the hostel in Grasmere. One loop heads west from the hostel, through the Langdale valley. The other loop heads east and takes in parts of the famous Fairfield horseshoe.

Both of these loops have spectacular scenery along the way, from riverside meadows to rolling hills, and from mountain summits to classic Cumbrian villages.

The terrain sees us tackle well walked footpaths, remote tracks, country lanes and rocky mountain passes making up for a diverse and challenging route.

Not only will the terrain be there to challenge us, but as the sun sets on a full day of trekking we will only just be getting started!

After completing the first loop you will have time to stop at the hostel to refresh and have dinner. However, you can't rest for too long as the next section awaits you!

Our challenge continues through the night where we will need every ounce of team spirit to get us through.

We will be fully supported throughout the challenge by qualified leaders and a fantastic support team who will be supplying us with much needed drinks, hot meals and plenty of encouragement throughout the day and night.


Day 3, Sun 25 Jun 2017

Challenge finish!

We will finish back at the Grasmere hostel where we will celebrate our achievements. Our adventure doesn’t end here though as both teams will then have time to celebrate, share stories and enjoy a fantastic celebration brunch.

This really is a unique team event like no other. 24 hours of trekking with fantastic people all working together whilst raising money for such a fantastic cause.


Important information

The itinerary is there as a guide and may change due to unusual weather patterns, the strength of the group and so on. We will do our very best to keep to the set itinerary; however we cannot be held responsible for any last minute changes that might occur. In all such circumstances, your expedition leader will have the final say.
