Take on the 2021 Lake District Challenge

Lake district logoWalk, jog or run the Lake District Challenge on 12 & 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 £1 – you just need to register for a Charity Sponsorship between 24th December and 31st January.
