Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th August 2018
Are you off on a trip of a lifetime? Ensure you have the best possible time by getting yourself as physcially and mentally prepared as you can.
This weekend is specifically designed to help you get ready for your international trek. You will complete two days of walking back to back, both of which will help increase your fitness as we pack in the miles and hills! The weekend will be hosted by a qualified mountain leader who also has experience in leading and completing expeditions around the world, so expect to get lots of hints and tips on common themes such as trekking at altitude, health and hygeine etc. This weekend is also great for testing out new kit and getting answers to all those burning questions you may have!
On Day 1 we will hope to complete the classic Coledale Horseshoe. This walk is roughly 10.5 miles and will include at least 6 peaks. The walk will take in the region of 7 hours.
Day 2 will start from Keswick itself, and the exact route will be decided based on the groups aspirations on day 1. If we are looking for ascent we may complete Skiddaw, wheras if we would like a day of high mileage we may do a high level loop of Derwent Water.
Keswick is an ideal place to base yourself for the weekend due to the location of these walks. There are all types of accommodation in Keswick, from hostel to hotels.
