Longest and Highest Team Challenge Events

Longest and Highest Team Challenges

The longest and highest team challenge in the Lake District has been reasonably popular for almost two decades and involves paddling the longest body of still water, then ascending the highest mountain in the country, with a bike journey between the two locations. Less popular are the Scottish and Welsh versions, both greater feats of physical endurance.


In England the journey starts with an 18km paddle along Windermere, usually from south to north, followed by a bike journey into the back of the Langdale valley for the ascent up onto Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England.


In Scotland the journey is a more formidable challenge beginning on Loch Awe with a 41km paddle and ending on the summit of Ben Nevis 95km away by bike and hike and 1345m above sea level.


In Wales the journey starts with a short 5km paddle followed by a 55km pedal to Pen-y-Pass and the short hike onto the summit of Snowdon at 1085 metres above sea level.


We provide and all necessary equipment, including waterproofs and boots, and all teams are accompanied by a professionally qualified technician.


The longest and highest team challenges usually last for 1-3 days, though each team determines their own target time. On each event we can support up to 40 people at a time in teams of 8, with staggered starts. We can also run the events as simultaneous relays, whereby each leg is take on by a different team, offering a variety of levels of challenge.


If the National Longest and Highest Events are inappropriate, we can design a bespoke multi-discipline event to match your requirements. Please enquire.
