Lakeland Ascents provide a whole range of Lake District challenges perfect for team building, charity fundraising or social events. The beautiful surroundings of the Lake District, its wide variety of terrain and excellent local amenities makes it the perfect location for any challenge event.
All our challenges can be customised to suit your specific requirements and experience. We have a long history of creating challenges to suit a range of different groups, both corporate and private.
We can put together a challenge to align with your groups’ current outdoor experience, but here’s some information on the most popular challenges that we run:
The 10 Peaks Challenge takes in 10 serious Lake District peaks. We provide 2 versions, both of which go through the major Lakeland mountain ranges and have a 12 hour target time. This is a seriously tough Lake District challenge for anyone looking for a real mountain day.
This is the perfect challenge for anyone looking to really test themselves without leaving the Lake District. The 24 Peaks Challenge is far harder than the well known National 3 Peaks. The challenge takes on significant mileage in the 24 hour target time. As with the 10 Peaks Challenge we have 2 different routes to keep logistics nice and simple.
This challenge is a national challenge, as opposed to just being in the Lake District but is becoming more and more popular. The 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the UK’s 3 highest peaks with a time limit of 24 hours, however many groups decide to do it over more leisurely 3 days.
Similar to the National 3 Peaks Challenge, this again summits the UK’s highest mountains, but this time via technical mountaineering terrain. This Extreme version of the 3 Peaks for the experienced hillwalker who really wants to push themselves whilst also escaping the crowds.
Operated by our sister company Lake District Activities – our Lakeland Legend Challenge is a full day of extreme adventure challenges. All take place in an incredibly atmospheric quarry in the Lake District. Only those with the bravery and nerve to stand up to everything that’s thrown at them will complete it.
