Huge thanks and well done to all of you who took part in our first edition of the Cumbrian Challenge, Walking With The Wounded’s inaugural public event. We had an amazing weekend despite the weather, and we would like to take this occasion to thank Helly Hansen for their continued support without which events such as the Cumbrian Challenge would be much harder to create.
Congratulations to the winners: Girls On Top (picture above), for concluding the Tough route (20k hike, 1144m of altitude gain, 5 peaks) at 12:02 and to the winners of the Tougher route (33k hike, 2327m of altitude gain, 10 peaks taking in Striding Edge, Hevellyn, Red Screes.): Cambridge UOTC Cadets (picture below.
