Coledale Hike


Saturday 21st May | 07:00 – 08:00am

Anyone up for the Coledale Hike?  A tough but rewarding day out

The challenge route is a total of 17.6 miles with 1444m of ascent over rugged, steep and very challenging terrain. Please only enter this event if you are an experienced hiker.

The route leaves our Festival Village, taking you up Catbells, where you then descend and head along Rigg Beck. You then ascend up and onto the southern ridge of the Coledale Horseshoe, taking in Sail and Crag Hill before descending into the valley. But it’s time to get those climbing legs back on as you ascend up to Outerside, which is followed by Slight Side and Barrow. Once you’ve ticked your 6th summit you then head back to Keswick using a variety of roads, paths and tracks.

Please note, there are no hydration or feed stations on this hike, you must pack enough to be self sufficient. Juniors aged 14+ must be accompanied by an adult (no more than 2 juniors to 1 adult).

Greener feed stations:

Disposable cups are a source of waste so we're keeping their use to a minimum. There will be no cups at the feed stations so please bring a re-usable foldable ‘soft cup’ or drinks bottle. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations. Foldable soft cups will be available to buy in Sports Registration on the day if you need one.

You will enter the entrants details at checkout.
