Running Wild Challenge - Lakeland 50

On July 30th WildAid Charlie will be competing a gruelling solo run in the Lakeland 50 to raise funds for WildAid. 

The Lakeland 50 is one the greatest ultra-running challenges in Europe, through the heart of the Lake District. It is run on rough terrain with approximately 3100m of ascent (roughly climbing Ben Nevis 3 times over).

Charlie says:  WildAid transforms people’s attitudes about the natural world and British wildlife and this is why I am asking you to support my challenge. Their work has such a positive impact for the well being of young people and for British wildlife. 

The route starts from the Northern end of Ullswater within the grand Dalemain Estate before following the Eastern shore line as far as Howtown. A quick climb and descent followed by a trek along the banks of Haweswater sees in Mardale Head. The route from here visits Long Sleddale, Kentmere, Ambleside, Langdale and Tilberthwaite before the final climb and descent to the finish at Coniston. 

WildAid is currently applying for grant funding to extend new well being and ambassador education programs. Absolutely any contribution will help enormously so we can deliver this much needed engagement.

You can support this challenge on our 'Get Involved' section of the website. Thank you.

"It's all about encouraging people to participate and learn about the natural world through hands on discovery."
