IDAHOT - The Manchester Pride 10 Peaks Challenge

13 May, 2017

During May we commemorate International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) with a programme of fundraising and awareness raising events and activities.

Manchester Pride 10 Peaks Challenge - Saturday 13 May 2017

The Borrowdale valley is one of the most iconic valleys the Lake District has to offer. Surrounding it’s upper reaches are some of the finest, and tallest mountains in England, and the objective of this challenge is to try and climb them all in just 12 hours.

From the sleepy hamlet of Seathwaite, your journey will start alongside a cascading waterfall as you make headway for Great Gable, the 8th highest mountain in England. On the way you will ‘bag’ 2 further peaks. A long descent from Great Gable is followed by a journey up towards Scafell Pike via the Corridor Route, the original guides route on the mountain. Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England is conquered after Lingmell, and the half way mark is also met. The second half of the challenge consists of taking in the rocky subsidiary tops of Scafell Pike, and then Great End, the 6th highest mountain in England. Just two peaks remain before journeying back to the start point.

In total there is 12 miles of walking, but a hearty 2000m of ascent over 10 peaks thrown in for good measure. Can you do it in just 12 hours?

To take part, we ask that you raise a minimum of £250.  Free return transport and accommodation is available to participants. Please note places are limited and applications are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis so we would recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
