Date: Saturday 07 August 2021

NEW FOR 2021! See the Lake District from a new viewpoint, with this incredible hospice event!


This summer, challenge yourself in the great outdoors, with Ullswater and Helvellyn providing a stunning and scenic backdrop to your challenge. During an action-packed day of fundraising you will cycle, canoe and hike amongst the northern most reaches of the beautiful Lake District. 


What can you expect: 

Bikes 

Distance: 30 miles 
Duration: 3 to 4 hours 

Starting from Newbiggin Village Hall, the cycle is split into 2 sections, one at the start of the day and one at the end. The route takes you on a scenic route along the shores of Ullswater, surrounded by The Lake District peaks. The course is a mix bag, with some small hills and one large climb. 

Boats 

Distance: 2 miles 
Duration: Approx. 1 Hour 

Grab a paddle and take on 2 miles of the stunning Ullswater lake. In a team of four you will complete in two connected canoe boats creating a stable craft, keeping the team together. When finished, you’ll be back on your bikes for a steep pedal up to the base of the mountain road for the ‘Boots’ section of the event. 

Boots 

Distance: 11km/Ascent 726m 
Duration: 4 to 5 hours 

Leave your bikes behind and get ready to trek up the third highest peak in England, the magnificent Helvellyn. For the tough climb you will be rewarded with incredible views across the whole Lake District. Once complete, it’s back on your bikes for the final 15 mile pedal to the finish and to celebrate your achievements.
