About the event

With two different routes on offer, you can tailor your weekend to suit your ability. Choose our skyline trek if you want to test yourself on the dizzying heights of the Lake District. Or for a simpler (but by no means flat!) option, take on the Borrowdale Circuit, following a variety of paths and tracks conquering some of the lower Lakeland Fells. 

The Lake District Skyline Challenge

The Lake District Challenge is based in the heart of the Lake District in the Borrowdale Valley.  The 2 day, 20-mile challenge is to complete the skyline circuit of the Borrowdale Valley. The Challenge makes its way through the Lakeland fells to and explores some remote areas. It follows some rough hill paths and a good level of fitness is required.

The Lake District Borrowdale Circuit

If the Skyline challenge sounds like too much climbing, then the Borrowdale Circuit may be the one for you.  This lovely challenge circumnavigates the stunning Borrowdale Valley in the heart of the Lake District.  It is by no means flat but it does reach the dizzy heights of the Skyline Challenge. Instead it follows a variety of paths and tracks and conquers some of the lower Lakeland Fells.
