Lake District 3 Peaks with Bikes - An alternative to the original Lake District 3 Peaks described on this page, which includes bikes.  Ascend each of the 3 peaks and bike in between with a target of completing the challenge within 16 hours.  A great way to add a different dimension to this popular challenge event.  More information on our biking orientated Lake District 3 Peaks can be found in our 'Next Level' challenge event section.

Lake District 3 Peaks in 36 hours - This challenge is at a similar level to the Lake District 3 Peaks with bikes but is a walking only version of the challenge by summiting all 3 mountain peaks and walking in between over 2 days with one night of camping en-route.  More information on our 36 hour Lake District 3 Peaks can be found in our 'Next Level' challenge event section.

Lake District 3 Peaks in 24 hours - One continuous walk linking all 3 peaks within a time limit of 24 hours; not for the faint hearted, or legged.  More information on this version of the Lake District 3 Peaks can be found in our 'Endurance' section on our challenge events homepage.
