Winchester College CCF – Mallory Challenge 2: In Support of the Royal British Legion
July 2015 will see 41 cadets and 21 staff from the Winchester College CCF travel to the Lake District to complete the Mallory Challenge 2. The concept of the Challenge is that the cadets, divided into 4 teams and supported by adventure training instructors, complete a demanding, continuous circular relay across the Lake District National Park. Following a successful Challenge in 2013, when the team raised £18K for the Royal British Legion, the route has been redesigned to allow the 4 teams collectively to cover 350km, 10,800m of ascent and paddle 8 Lakes in 4 ½ days, by mountain-bike, canoe and on foot! The route will see the team climb the classic mountain peaks, including Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, Blencathra, Skiddaw, High Street, Fairfield and the Old Man of Coniston; and paddle the beautiful Lakes, including Windermere, Coniston, Thirlmere, Crummock, Buttermere, Derwent Water, Bassenthwaite and Ullswater. These outstanding Wainwrights and Lakes will be connected by a series of mountain biking and cross country legs, enabling the team to enjoy the natural beauty of the local area whilst fundraising for the RBL.
