As it stands, the Lake District Challenge will not be taking place on 13-14 June 2020, as a result of the decision to postpone, or cancel, all mass public gatherings, to try to contain the spread of COVID-19. The event organisers have announced 12-13 June 2021 as next year’s event date. You will find full details of the 2021 challenge on this page once registration has opened. Visit the challenge website for further info.
