If you fancy taking on the challenge at a slightly slower pace, then why not walk the route instead. It’s still a challenge so is a great platform to test yourself, fundraise or to spend time with friends.

The two day challenge includes your pitch fee for your tent (which you provide and we transport to the Event Village), meal voucher, showers and entertainment at night. If you fancy only one day then the finish of day one and the start of day two will be from the Event Village in Ravenglass. Use the coastal railway to get to/from the venue.
