Lakes 3000s Challenge

So you've come this far... that means you're almost ready to book on to an INTO THE OUTSIDE challenge event!

There are certain essentials you will need on the hill to keep you warm, hydrated, full of energy and smiling.

The scale of equipment you will need will of course depend on the time of year, level of challenge and the number of hours out on the mountains.

For example, The National 3 Peaks is a summer event so winter style equipment is not required. However, a windproof and waterproof are essential items in case of wet weather conditions. Wear warm layers at night and for early morning stages, and don't forget to pack a head torch.

This list is only a guide but should tick some of the boxes.

Cap/warm hat

Waterproof gloves/liner gloves

Synthetic T-shirt/Fleece

Trekking pants

Waterproof jacket/trousers

Comfortable walking boots

30-35 Litre rucksack

Lunch/energy bars/boiled sweets

Walking poles (If you use them)

Head Torch (spare batteries)


Dry/spare clothes (for driving sections)

A First aid kit and group equipment will be carried by Dan, your mountain leader.

To get the maximum enjoyment from the event a good level of fitness is recommended. You could be out on the mountains for up to 6 hours for a Lake District Guided Walk, 12 hours for the Lakes 3000s, 16 hours for the National 3 Peaks and walking for 24 miles on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.

These challenges are a serious undertaking. They will test you mentally and physically to the full. Why not sign up with Dan on a Lake District Guided Walk as a warm up. You need to give yourself the best possible chance of success!
