Leading military Charity, Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’), has just announced three exciting new routes for the Cumbrian Challenge. The Cumbrian Challenge is WWTW’s annual flagship fundraising event which takes place in Grasmere on the weekend of 14 May this year.
The routes cater for every ability and will push teams of participants both mentally and physically.
Starting with the Peak route, which is the perfect introduction to fell walking, participants will follow a gentle 10-kilometre climb through the Cumbrian fells. The route sweeps around the west of Grasmere and incorporates 1 peak.
The Tough route is more of a challenge; however, it offers participants some of the best views in the Lake District. The route traverses up and down the hills to the west of Grasmere and will see walkers taking on a 26-kilometre hike across 9 peaks.
Finally, the Tougher route is not for the faint hearted. Following a 32- kilometre route across 12 peaks, this route will introduce participants to a stunning range of vistas across the Lake District.
This year marks WWTW’s 9th Cumbrian Challenge event. Since its inception, the event has seen over 1,200 teams take part and raised more than £1.2 million to support veterans and their families.
James Davis, WWTW Events Manager, commented,
“We are excited to introduce 3 new routes to the challenge this year which will unveil some of the most incredible views across Grasmere and beyond. The Cumbrian Challenge is a fantastic team-building event that is guaranteed to put a spring in your step and raise much-needed funds to support veterans and their families.”
