Lakes 3000s


The Lakes 3000s is a challenge event that involves walking each of the Lake District Mountains that rise above 3000ft. These are also known as the Lakes 3000 Footers, whose summits include: Skiddaw (3,054ft), Helvellyn (3,117ft), Scafell (3,162ft) and Scafell Pike (3,209ft).

The Lakes 3000s is a major undertaking involving some 12,550ft of ascent and descent, 14 kilometres of walking over difficult terrain and exposure to the mountain elements for an extended period of time.

This is an excellent event to test your mental and physical resolve. A Lake District Guided Walk will assess your fitness and stamina, and be an indicator of your readiness for this event.

I strongly recommend signing up for a Lake District Guided Walk - join me, Dan, your experienced mountain leader, in an activity that will test your ability and improve your confidence in the great outdoors!

The Lakes 3000s are an excellent stand-alone event and can be used as stepping stone to complete the National 3 Peaks or Yorkshire 3 Peaks.

Please see the website for a summery of the day, durations and the fitness and equipment guide.
