A unique triathlon which will see you canoe, cycle and trek through the staggering beauty of Keswick!
It’s the Big Lakes Challenge! This is a unique three day event which includes The Big Challenge on Day 2. Canoe, cycle and trek through the staggering beauty of Keswick. The Big Lakes Challenge is not a race and is open to all abilities.
The challenge begins at Derwentwater, with a three mile canoe journey in two-person open canoes around St Herbert’s Island, before jumping onto bikes to begin the ascent up to Gatesgarth via the infamous Honister Pass. From here you will trek up Haystacks with qualified and experienced mountain leaders – the views from the summit of Haystacks are famed for their beauty. The final stage sees you back on the bike and cycling via Newlands Pass to the finish line.
