The 24 Peaks Trek takes us to the top of some of the Lake District’s highest peaks in one weekend of adventure!

We’ll be trekking for 12 hours each day, covering around 28 miles over the weekend – with around 12,500ft of total ascent, the 24 Peaks challenge is one of the UK’s most demanding adventures.

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK, filled with breathtaking mountain views and valleys – it is the perfect backdrop to this awesome challenge. The days will be long and the trekking really tough, but the rewards of hiking into the heart of this amazing National Park and the accomplishment of conquering 24 peaks will make your efforts worthwhile.

If you have completed the classic 3 Peaks, then this is your next challenge. Exceptional support awaits you, and together we can conquer this monster trek!
