The Swinside Inn Are Delighted To Be Hosting A New Event

The Family 5in5 Challenge

5 Mountains In 5 Hours Charity Event

The organisers of the well-established and super-successful 10in10 Challenge, which has raised £341,000 since the first event seven years ago, are launching a Family 5in5.

Walkers will head to the hills in September to take on five family-sized mountains in five hours to raise money for research into Multiple Sclerosis.

Saturday 29 September 2018

Keswick mum-of-three Yvonne Booth designed and created the original 10in10 Challenge walk in 2011. It was her response to her husband Duncan’s diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis in 2010 at the age of 39.

Ages 8 – 88

“Over the years, we’ve listened to people saying they’d like a new challenge which the whole family can take on and we think we’ve found the perfect route! I am so excited to launch the Family 5in5, it’s a celebration of family fellwalking. I hope people will enjoy training for the first event this year and then join us on Saturday 29 September 2018 for what I promise will be one of the most fun days you can have on the mountains.

“As a family, we know that getting children out on the fells and keeping them going can be a challenge, so we’re providing cake on every peak as well as a feed station en route.”
