Lake District Challenge

Overview

Help for Heroes is an official Partner on this great challenge and can offer you a 25% discount on your charity registration fee when you use code H4H.

Back again for 2022 - walk, Jog, or Run the Lake District Challenge and take on England's finest countryside at your pace. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge - suitable for all experience levels - and you'll get the best support and hospitality all the way.

Our Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it's a loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves - with some stunning views en route - before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey.

Push yourself further - 100km Full Challenge, with Half & Quarter options also available.

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
