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, TheBob Graham Round 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 is a multi day challenge and there will be wild camping involved so make sure you pack essential overnight kit.
