A Rough Outline
On Thursday 10th September teams from the Outdoor & Sports Industry will take on a Hike, Bike and Paddle in the Lake District. Following the success of 2019’s Snowdonia challenge, more teams will be welcomed to another of the UK’s stunning national parks in 2020. We can guarantee glorious scenery, a huge challenge, the opportunity to network and a rewarding experience we are sure you will enjoy.
We recommend teams of 4-8 people who can either enter the whole challenge or do the event as a relay (minimum numbers on each section will apply). You will need to ensure that at least two members can navigate with a map and compass and it’s definitely best if a couple of you are able to swim. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a team – you can still take part and we will team you up. You will be timed and yes there are prizes!
We will be staying at the YHA in Borrowdale. We’ll be using the YHA as the venue for our challenge registration, event briefings, challenge base and the After Party. Two nights of accommodation costs are included in your event fee.
The cost for entering the event is £250 per person. This includes:
- One day Hike, Bike, Paddle challenge, including: fully qualified mountain guides to support you on route, medical support, bike mechanic and event tracking/timing chips
- 2 nights’ accommodation
- Breakfast and dinner on the challenge day
- A dedicated events officer and full pre-event support, including: training advice, logistical help and fundraising resources
The team fundraising target for this challenge is £2,000 for the Youth Adventure Trust. Don’t worry – we are here to help you! Once you have registered your team, we will give you a call to chat about your fundraising plans and there is loads of advice in the challenge handbook.
