Safety

Each team leader must check that their team is present and correct at the start and let us know of any changes. All team members must START TOGETHER and STAY TOGETHER!

We will provide each entrant with a number which must be visible for the marshals to see. It is imperative that you check in with every marshal on every peak that is marshalled! (You must give them your number only). Marshalled peaks are indicated on the Route Guide on the reserve of the map. If you do not do this you will be assumed to be missing and we will start looking for you!!! Each marshal is then responsible for letting base know that you have passed through their checkpoint.

5in5 Teams You will be given a map and Route Guide. Again, you must check-in with every marshal on every marshalled peak as indicated on the Route Guide.

PLEASE NOTE If you or your team members leave the event for any reason you must inform a marshal so that we can sign you out. Please be sensible if one of your team members retires, ensure that another team member goes with them.

YOU MUST SIGN YOURSELF OUT OF THE EVENT WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED. Please see a 10in10 marshal at the Swinside Inn or sooner if you leave the event early!

ICE In case of an Emergency You will need to leave us an emergency name and number, and indicate any medical conditions. You will not be able to enter the event without providing us with this information. I am sure we won’t need to use this number but we must be prepared for all eventualities!

Adverse Weather Conditions

Please note: the 10in10 or 5in5 route may change at the last minute if the weather conditions are extreme. If it is dangerously windy, we will re-route to avoid some of the higher peaks.


Pat on the Back

We will see all participants at the end in the Swinside Inn for the after event party!  We have booked the fantastic Rory McDonald to play music from 4 pm onwards.  There will be superb food to buy from http://www.stonehousesmokery.co.uk/

Please aim to do the challenge in no more than 10 hours, otherwise you could miss the fun at the party!

Who We Are

Who We Are

The annual 10in10 challenge was designed and created by Yvonne Booth in 2011. It was her response to her husband Duncan's diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010 at the age of 39. As a wife and mother of three sons, she wanted to do something positive and help raise money for research into this cruel illness. find out more →
