What is the Heaven and Helvellyn challenge?

Take on this fabulous guided challenge to support the RAF Association. Tackling Helvellyn via Striding Edge you are sure to experience the very best of the Lake District, and it doesn’t stop there, as this route takes on five of the famous peaks in total.

You can arrive on the day and take on Helvellyn, or you can camp with your team mates and our fundraising staff, who will be with you every step of the way on the day. We can cook together and prep for the climb.

This RAFA Adventure will get your leg muscles burning and your heart rate pumping. Starting and finishing in the beautiful Lakeland village of Patterdale you will enjoy some of the best landscapes that the Lake District has to offer.

The route is 11 miles in total, that’s 18km with a total of 3700ft of climb. Your expert guides with extensive local knowledge will be on hand to assist, and your challenge can be altered to avoid the more difficult technical sections.

We finish the climb with a pub meal, a drink or two and a tremendous sense of achievement.

Do get in touch if you have any questions on the level of expertise required. We are confident this route is manageable by most with a head for heights, a base level of fitness and some hiking experience.

You will raise funds for veterans, serving personnel and their families as well as being rewarded with a fabulous sense of achievement.
