Organised and run in aid of North East Autism Society by Take a Hike UK

Start the summer with a bucket list hiking challenge! We've teamed up with Take a Hike UK for their Super Scafell Summer Challenge, which will see intrepid hikers follow the rewarding circular route from Langdale Valley to cross five Wainwrights off the list, including one of the national Three Peaks. You can take this challenge on this July, and raise vital funds to support North East Autism Society in the process.

This one-day trek, starting from Old Dungeon Ghyll in Langdale Valley, will see participants ascend Pike o'Blisco, enjoy breathtaking scenery on the trek across to Crinkle Crags and Bowfell, before climbing Esk Pike and summiting the mighty Scafell Pike! After the much-awaited photo opportunities from the peak, you'll circle back down to the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel to celebrate your achievements with the team.

The challenge will be operated by Take a Hike UK, with whom we've worked on previous events such as our 20-mile Cleveland Way Hiking Challenge, and who have supported NEAS by walking the 109-mile length of the Cleveland Way in one go to raise funds for our services.


Registration for this challenge costs £37.50, but Take a Hike have offered a £12.00 discount for participants signing up to support North East Autism Society, using the promotional code "NEAS12". For this challenge, we would encourage you to fundraise to support our vital lifeline services across the region, but there is no minimum fundraising target for you to reach - please just raise what you can.
