Everest in the Lakes

Everest in the Lakes is a short sharp hiking challenge. How far can you get out of your comfort zone in one weekend?
The goal is simple: You will climb half the height of Everest – the world’s highest peak, whilst raising money for a cause close to your heart. The goal is simple. The challenge is anything but.

It’s a tough event taking place this Summer in the beautiful Lake District, here in the UK. You will be pushed to your limits to reach half the height of Everest over two days. That’s 4424 metres of elevation gain, although you’ll actually be hiking the full height including descent! You will be out hiking on average 10-14 hours a day, however long it takes to stay on track and reach your target.

Physically, mentally, it’s demanding. There is more vertical ascent than the Three Peaks combined. That is a lot of ascent (and descent) to cover in one weekend… but it’s also a lot of fun. You’ll take part in teams of 8 to 10 people and each team with have two qualified Mountain guides to lead the way.

Everest in the Lakes is for anyone who loves hiking, the mountains, or simply loves a challenge, and wants to put hard effort into making a difference. Maybe you dream of taking on Everest in the Alps but for whatever reason, you can’t take a week out of your life just yet? This challenge will be just as tough, and just as rewarding.
