Sponsored Events and Mountain 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)


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

charity walk 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.

The popularity of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks route causes a certain amount of disruption to the residents of Horton-in-Ribblesdale and environmental damage to the route itself. The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and Horton-in-Ribblesdale Parish Council have drawn up a Three Peaks Code of Conduct that should be followed. Lupine Adventure Co-op are a corporate friend of the 3 peaks and everyone taking part in a Lupine Adventure run event will receive a Yorkshire 3 Peaks medal bought as a fundraiser from the park authority to help contribute to path upkeep (but don't tell your participants as it is often a nice surprise)
