Open Challenge Events & Innovations (Charity Events Lake District)
Our challenge events tend to be organised for bespoke groups, however we appreciate that not everyone is able to organise at least 7 people and sometimes just want to do one alone. We therefore keep this page up to date with all our associated events which are suitable for individuals and small groups.
Dates for these events are subject to your preferences and our availability, and are suitable for individuals and small groups whether you have a fundraising focus or just for a personal challenge.
