Sponsored Events and Challenges

Sponsored Events and Mountain Challenges

 

charities – corporate teams – groups – individuals  

 

Whether your aim is to raise money for charity, a team-building exercise with a difference, or purely the satisfaction of completing one of these challenges, we can provide the event for you.

 

As a not-for-profit social enterprise with an involvement in social and environmental issues, we are the natural choice for fundraisers. If you represent a charity or large group wishing to organise an event then please take a look at our Information for Charities and Large Groups page.

 

 In addition to mountain challenges we also run climbing, abseiling and mixed activity events. No challenge is too big or too small for us so if you don’t see what you want here then get in touch – we are happy to work with you to come up with the right event for you. 

The Lakes 3000s

 

leeds-lakes-022Region: The Lake District (Cumbria)

The Challenge: To complete the circular route of all four 3000ft peaks in the Lake District (Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Scafell and Scafell Pike) in 24 hours

Distance: 45 miles

 

This route features less in the way of difficult rocky ground than it's Welsh cousin (though it has its share), but more than makes up for this with it's extra 15 miles of ground covered and is generally considered the harder challenge. Only the exceptionally fast can expect to complete it in daylight hours, most of us must expect several hours of walking in darkness, something that only adds to its epic feel and the resulting sense of satisfaction.

 

The Welsh 3000s (aka The 15 Peaks Challenge)

crib2-briefing

Region: Snowdonia (North Wales) 

The Challenge: To climb every 3000ft peak in Wales in 24 hours. (We also run this as a 3-day event) 

Distance: 48km (30 miles)

Price: From £139 per person
 

The Welsh 3000's challenge, also known as 'The 15 peaks' or '14 peaks challenge', follows a route across Snowdonia taking in every mountain peak of 3000 feet or more in height.  This is a long and hard route, in total you will ascend nearly 4000 m (13,000ft) in vertical height, but also a very beautiful and rewarding one.  The varied nature of the terrain all adds to the interest; you will encounter not just good paths and grassy slopes but also knife-edge ridges and rocky scrambles as you progress.

 

Lupine Adventure Co-op run two types of Welsh 3000ers events, the 24 hour challenge and the infinitely more sensible 3 day event.

 

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks

y3p groupRegion: Yorkshire Dales

The Challenge: To complete the circular walk of the Yorkshire 3 peaks (Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) in 12 hours. 

Distance: 38km (23miles)

 

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is set in some of the best scenery the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. The 23 miles in 12 hours is achievable for most but is by no means a push over.  This is an absolute classic mountain challenge.

 

You can take part in this challenge with a team of friends or collegues on a date that suits you . We can also put on large multi-team events for bigger work places and charities.

 

Book on a Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

 

If you have a team through your work or other social group we can run this event just for you by either accompanying your teams around the route or by simply meeting them at check points along the way. Groups of under 18's (school groups for example) will need to be accompanied by us on this event.

Challenge Event Feedback

"The staff were absolutely fantastic in every way. They were very professional and excellent with the (quite lively) kids. The 2 trainees were also fantastic. We can't praise them all highly enough.

 

The kids had a great day and are all so proud of themselves. Some of them have never left Nottingham before and some of them turned up with just a carrier bag and a pair of trainers ... The positive impact of the achievement on these kids is huge.

 

Thank you so much."

"The booking process was really straightforward. Andy got back to our request really quickly and was able to tailor the challenge to our exact requirements; reducing the cost of the walk considerably meaning more of our fundraising could go towards our appeal!

I am so glad we decided to go with Lupine Adventure rather than trying to take on the challenge alone. Andy and Nick’s knowledge of the route ensured we felt at ease throughout the challenge. Andy and Nick were seen as part of the team, rather than as instructors who were separate from our group.They were fantastic at keeping our moral up throughout the entire challenge, especially at our lowest points and I’m sure we wouldn’t have completed the walk in 10.5 hours without them! If we were ever to take on a similar challenge in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Andy. "

"We just wanted to say we thought Siobhan was absolutely brilliant on Saturday when she got 11 of us up to the Snowdon Summit. We all had such an amazing experience and will never forget it. Siobhan was so encouraging and helpful and there is no way we would have made it without her I'm so glad we booked a guide! We chose to come down a different way which was amazing as we got to see some awesome scenery and to experience two different paths.
We will not hesitate to use you in the future as we are already planning our next trip."

Both Charlie and Trev showed good leadership skills and were very helpful to all members of Team Age UK.

 

I have no hesitation in recommending Lupine Adventure Co-op and the excellent service they provide, to any other group who are doing a similar challenge event.

"We were a mixed mostly corporate group of 20 who wanted to walk the Welsh 1K. Andy Godfrey (Lead ML) set up a great route and we were joined by ML's Patrick and Richie on the day. Everything about Lupine was professional. Not only did Andy and his team do what they said they were going to do, they made a tough day enjoyable. When difficult decisions had to be made they didn't abrogate to the group leader, they took them finding the right balance. Our group had a fantastic time and will use Lupine again on next years challenge without hesitation. "
