Welcome to the 10 in 10 and 5 in 5 - Every year we organise a walking challenge in the English Lake District to raise money for the MS Society. Ten peaks in the Lake District to be completed in ten hours - or a five peaks in five hours challenge.
The annual 10 in 10 challenge was designed and created by Yvonne Booth in 2011. It was her response to her husband Duncan’s diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010. As a wife and mother of three sons, she wanted to do something positive and help raise money for research into this cruel illness.
Multiple Sclerosis is a debilitating neurological disease with no cure.
Every June, hundreds of people walk over ten mountains in ten hours or five mountains in five hours.
Walkers are sponsored to take part - so far they have raised a magnificent £417,000 for research into Multiple Sclerosis. We encourage each participant to attempt to raise at least £200 for the MS Society UK.
This year we will be heading over Causey Pike, Sail, Crag Hill, Wandope, Whiteless Pike, High Snockrigg, Robinson, Dale Head, High Spy, Maiden Moor. You will register between 6am and 8.30am at the Swinside Inn, here you will be given your number and a waterproof map.
This year, we start in Buttermere and walk over High Snockrigg, Robinson, Dale Head, High Spy and Maiden Moor. You will register between 10am and 10.30am in Buttermere (above the church), here you’ll be given a number and a waterproof map. Once your team is ready, you can make your way to the start and we’ll let you know when to begin your challenge. We stagger the start of the event to make it enjoyable for all 5 in 5 participants.
