Take on the 2021 Lake District Challenge

Lake district logoWalk, jog or run the Lake District Challenge on 12 and 13 June 2021. Choose your distance and the level of fundraising you’d like to commit to. Join #TeamChildrenwithCancerUK today and help us be there for children and families affected by childhood cancer.

New for 2021 – 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 100km anticlockwise 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.

Use code CWC2021 to sign up for just £5 – you just need to register for a Charity Sponsorship place between 15 March and 30 April 2021.
