Is this challenge the next big thing? We think so! Imagine something as hard as the National 3 Peaks, but requires far less driving and has a much much smaller environmental impact - say hello to the L3K Sunset Challenge!

This challenge has been adapted from the traditional Lakeland 3000's in 24 Hours Round. We thought there was a place for something which ticked all the same boxes, eliminated some of the more tedious elements of the full 24 hour challenge and visited some of the best possible routes up the peaks.  Join us on this challenge if you feel you could complete back to back traverses of Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Scafell Pike and Scafell all before the sun sets! This challenge is best suited to those who have completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, the Lakeland 24 Peaks or the National 3 Peaks Challenge. This challenge can also be completed over the course of 2-3 days should you not want to have such an intense challenge. This challenge also makes a perfect alternative to busier challenges such as the National 3 Peaks Challenge as the statistics in terms of what is walked is pretty similar - and you don't have to spend over 10 hours driving either! Join Lakeland Mountain Guides on this original challenge!

Terrain: Rough & Rocky   Duration: Approx. 16 hour Walking Day

Route Stats: Miles - 24  Ascent - 2800m.      Start Location: Cockermouth
