Ullswater Challenge … a very popular and demanding event!

The Ullswater Challenge is a Multi Activity one day event.

Why not challenge yourself and a team of colleagues with this exciting event which provides an excellent platform for both team building and/or charity fundraising

Set in the stunningly beautiful Lake District you will…

  • Canoe Ullswater – 12Km
  • Climb Helvellyn via Striding Edge and descend via Swirral Edge – 13Km
  • Mountain bike along the east side of Ullswater – 18Km
  • Total distance – 43Km

The Route
The Challenge is to canoe the full length of Lake Ullswater starting at Pooley Bridge and finishing at Glenridding.

From here you will then start your mountain climb Helvellyn via Striding Edge, this is probably the most famous mountain walk / scramble in the Lake District, to the summit 950m which is the third highest mountain in England. The descent route is along Swirral Edge, another scramble, down to Red Tarn and back to Glenridding.

From the car park, you then start the mountain biking section around Ullswater, with some road sections but mainly off road on Bridal ways. This brings you back to the start point at Pooley Bridge.
