X Lakes Challenge 2020

Availability : Yes

The X Lakes Challenge 2020 is an informal ‘hike and fly’ race that will be run over the weekend of 16th-17th May 2020. Its aim is for entrants to experience the wonders of the English Lake District and to do so by ‘bagging’ as many of the 1,000-foot Wainwright Fells as possible, either by foot or paraglider.

There is therefore a possibility to choose to move the single day event by one day should the entrants agree. All options in this regard will be discussed and agreed during the briefing on Friday evening. It is also likely that competitors will receive some communications in this respect in the days leading up to the event. Any late comers should get in touch by telephone if they wish to lodge an opinion.

Guide / Instructor
Course Fee Details
  • “Hard-Core”: £60, per competitor or per team

  • “Day-Trippers”: £25, per competitor or per team

The entry fee will allow the organisers to arrange for each team’s safety to be assured through tracking technologies, to lay on some food for the end of event festivities and to support the cost of some of the prizes. Any additional funds generated through the event will be donated to the Lake District Mountain Rescue teams.

Persons can enter as a single competitor but then switch to a team entry at no extra cost should they find a ‘buddy’ to make up a team entry. Competitors can enter at any time up until 9pm on Friday 15th May.
