Hospice at Home: The 20 Challenge & Wildlife Walk

Hospice at Home: The 20 Challenge & Wildlife Walk


Our toughest route is Option 1: The 20 Challenge

This requires stamina, energy and training! The challenging walk covers 20 miles of stunning Lake District scenery, with 10 summits to conquer along the way. The day will begin at 6am for registration and a “Grab and Go” breakfast station will be provided to give you an energising boost to start the day. You will climb Catbells, Maiden Moor, High Spy, Dale Head and Robinson and at the top of each summit we ask you to check in with our volunteer event marshals. If you have any queries they are on hand to assist you. A refreshment stop is provided at Buttermere, just over 11 miles into the route. Snacks and water will be available here, although each participant is required to bring their own lunch. You will then climb Whiteless Pike, Wandope, Crag Hill, Sail and Barrow before your triumphant arrival back to Braithwaite Institute. Refreshments will be served and the great celebrations will begin!

Option 2: The 20 Challenge (half route)

There is an option to complete an 11 mile route with 5 summits. This option follows the same route as above, however the walk will finish at Buttermere and return transport to Braithwaite Institute will be provided. Refreshments will be served at the finish.

Option 3: The Wildlife Wander.

This is a 9 mile guided, low level walk for families and friends of all ages to enjoy. Registration will take place from 9am and the route will take you along Newlands Beck and the Catbells Terrace, along the shore of Derwentwater and through the beautiful Lingholm Estate where a visit to the spectacular Walled Garden will take place, before returning across farmland to Braithwaite. There will be lots of opportunities to see and hear wildlife so keep an eyes and ears open!
