Challenge yourself for Cobalt

As the New Year arrives, many people are making New Year resolutions and are planning challenges to complete throughout 2022. Can we entice you to challenge yourself and raise money for medical charity Cobalt?

Charity Challenge

We will be working with Charity Challenge who have been in operation since 1999. They have created and managed events that have enabled people to raise over £59 million for over 2,170 charities. They organise treks, cycling challenges, mountain climbs, rafting, kayaking, skiing and sledging, dog sledging and community projects.

Charity Challenge is proud to have been recently voted the Best Challenge Company in the Institute of Fundraising PIFA Awards.

5 Peaks Challenge

  • A weekend challenge in the heart of the Lake District National Park
  • Take on 5 of the Lake District's toughest peaks
  • Trek to the summit of Scafell Pike, England's highest peak
  • Fully supported by qualified mountain leaders
  • A Magnificent route in the heart of this UNESCO World Heritage site

This challenge runs over just one day, but with five peaks to tackle it’s certainly no walk in the park! Prepare for an exhausting but energising journey through the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Lake District, as you venture across 14 miles (22km) and tackle five of England’s most demanding peaks, including its highest – Scafell Pike. The group will climb to over 3,000 feet (900m), crossing crags and moorland past the Langdale Pikes towards Scafell.
