Route information
The 10 peaks are, Causey Pike, Sail, Crag Hill, Wandope, Whiteless Pike, High Snockrigg, Robinson, Dale Head, High Spy and Maiden Moor. The Family 5in5 starts and finishes at the Swinside Inn, near Keswick. The route is approx. eight miles long and takes in five peaks – Causey Pike (637m), Scar Crags (672m), Outerside (568m), Stile End (447m) and Barrow (455m). It is an achievable challenge for an active family. However, please do not underestimate the terrain and nature of this route and the potential for changeable weather. We do not expect children to complete the Challenge in 5 hours. We want it to be an enjoyable experience for all involved. If you decide to bring your well behaved dog, again, please bear in mind the terrain of Causey Pike and be considerate of other walkers. Dogs should be kept on a lead at the Swinside Inn and on the fells. There will be lots of sheep!
What's included
Registration is open from 6am to 8.30am at the Swinside Inn in the Newlands Valley. Runners - Please start after 9am (this gives us time to get the marshals in place on the peaks!). Thanks for your understanding! Once you have registered and your team is ready, you can make your way to the start where we will let you know when you can set off.
