About the challenge

24 hours. Two teams. One life-changing adventure!

Two teams of Mind supporters will trek 40 miles through the breath-taking landscape of the Lake District.

From Grasmere, one stretch of Mind Hike leads through the beautiful Langdale valley before climbing between the mountains to circle the fells around High Raise and take the Coast to Coast path back to the village. The other loop follows an extended version of the famous Fairfield horseshoe, one of the Lake District's most challenging routes. Teams will climb 800 metres to the summits of Great Rigg, Fairfield, Hart Crag and Dove Crag.

Unique to Mind, this team trek will test both your physical and mental endurance while you walk some of Britain’s most beautiful and unspoilt countryside. It’s going to be tough, but you'll draw strength and inspiration from your team mates and finish with an experience you’ll never forget.

Places are limited for this one-off trek, so if you would like to share an amazing experience and support Mind at the same time, send us your application form without delay!

Ups and downs at every single turn, emotionally, physically and literally. I've made new, life-long friends, and smashed what I thought were my own personal limits. This challenge has had a profound effect on me and now I have a mountain of memories that I will carry with me forever
