Cumbrian Challenge 2016

February 26, 2016

If you sign up for just one Big Physical Challenge this year, then make it  Walking With The Wounded’s fun, challenging Cumbrian Challenge 2016. Every team that takes part supports another wounded veteran back into employment.

WHAT: The Cumbrian Challenge is Walking With The Wounded’s annual flagship  fundraising event in the Lake District for teams of four. This year the challenge is available to people of all fitness levels and determination with a new, easier route. In addition to the ‘Tough’ and the ‘Tougher’ ‘The Peak’ teams will be tested over the beautiful fells of the Lake District.

  • The Peak – 10km hike. Expected time: 4-11 hours (depending on experience)
  • The Tough – 20km hike, 1,300m of altitude gain, expected time: 5-11 hours (depending on experience)
  • The Tougher – 30km hike, 1,800m of altitude gain, expected time: 5-11 hours (depending on experience)

WHEN: 13-14 May 2016 (Friday night registration, dinner and briefing)

WHERE: The challenge starts and finishes in Grasmere enabling one bustling HQ for the pre event race meeting and dinner, post event awards and BBQ evening event.

COST: £200 per team of four and challenge to fundraise £1,000 per team (£250 each) in advance

WWTW Partnership and Events Manager Andy Sloan said: “Everyone who takes part in the Cumbrian Challenge really feels like they have achieved something. It’s a fun event, but challenging in line with what we do, and in a stunning location. Participants really benefit from the shared experience of meeting the charity’s staff, beneficiaries and expedition team members, on and off the hill, and this year we’re hoping to have 200 teams competing and making a real impact supporting our wounded into work.”
