Hospice Hike Challenge

£30.00

This event is only open to 50-50-500 Charity Challenge members.

We have once again teamed up with Adventure Trails to host an exclusive event solely for businesses that have signed up to the Charity Challenge to help accomplish their fundraising goal.

Could you and your colleagues take on three Lake District mountains and find your own way? If you think you can, why don’t you take part in the Hospice Hike Challenge!

Hospice Hike Challenge teams will compete against each other to see who can complete the 3 Lake District Peaks in the quickest time! Each team will be given a route and a map, all slightly different. A tracker app will be used and will ‘ping’ at each checkpoint – make sure you don’t incur a time penalty for not hitting a checkpoint!

All routes are approximately 15km (8 miles) so it is a challenge, but certainly achievable. However, the way the route is designed, if you only want to do one or two of the mountains, that’s absolutely fine.
Teams of up to 10 participants can enter with each team being allocated a Mountain Leader to ‘shadow’ the group and be responsible for mountain safety.

The event will have several dates for you to choose from:

  • Wednesday 1st May
  • Saturday 4th May
  • Wednesday 8th May
  • Saturday 11th May
  • Wednesday 15th May
  • Wednesday 22nd of May

You might be new to map reading and navigation, but don’t worry, you will be given the opportunity to get some training beforehand, which will be sufficient for the challenge. If your group has any navigation issues on the challenge, safety is always first most, so the allocated Mountain Leader will step in to assist.

To add to the competitive spirit, St John’s Hospice will be awarding the quickest team a trophy at the Charity Challenge Celebration Event!

The registration fee to take part is £30 per person, however the aim is to raise funds to support the work of St John’s through the Charity Challenge, and we ask each participant to aim to raise an additional £100 as a donation to the Hospice.

Please book your Hospice Hike places below. Once you have booked, our fundraisers will send out a participation form for you to send to every participant.
