10 Peaks Challenge in the Lake District to be completed in 10 hours!
5 Peaks Challenge!
On Saturday 21st June 2014.
This years’ event promises to be even bigger than last year. Over the past 3 years the event has raised over £60,000. “All sponsorship money raised will go towards the MS Society’s research into multiple sclerosis (MS), a debilitating neurological disease with no cure.”
Cumbria Gyroplanes are donating a free flight over the 10in10 route for the person that raises the most money.
Everybody that enters the 10in10 or 5and5 will be automatically entered into the 10in10 prize draw! Giving you the chance to win fabulous prizes from Berghaus, Cotswold, Needlesports and Planet Fear! The prize draw will take place at the Swinside on the evening of the 10in10! There are some brilliant prizes!! (current 2013).
Commencing from the Scafell Hotel the first peak will be Castle Crag, High Spy, Dale Head, Grey Knotts, Brandreth, Green Gable, Seathwaite Fell, Allen Crags, Glaramara and Thorneythwaite Fell.
This year Duncan Booth (one of the event organizers), who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010, plans on rowing up and down Derwentwater for ten hours attempting to clock up as many Km as he can, while 300 fundraisers climb the ten peaks, as a challenge for charity, not a competition. Please take the time to read the ‘Press section‘ on the website to find out more about Duncan and his family and the 10in10 challenge.

Sir Chris Bonington said: “Duncan Booth is an object lesson to us all. I think the way he has responded to his illness while he is still able has been inspirational.”
The 10 in 10 Challenge is organised by Yvonne Booth.
