Christmas Walk (or Run) & Lunch in aid of Patterdale Mountain Rescue

10th December 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Christmas Walk to look around the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Huts… followed by a 2-hour gentle social walk, or fast pace walk or a little run… followed by Soup & Sandwich Lunch at Inn On The Lake.

Join our Christmas gathering to raise funds for Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team (includes a tour around the Mountain Rescue Huts) …alongside Charlie from Mountain Run and some of his clients and running guides, and Debbie from Get-Active and her clients.

The Mountain Rescue members volunteer their time to help us when we have need and just can’t get back off the fells. This event is open to NORDIC AND NON-NORDIC WALKERS… so please tell your friends.

Our adventure includes a tour around the Patterdale Mountain Rescue huts (after a short wander from Glenridding, where we meet at 9:30 am). The huts are indoors, during the tour there will be homemade mince pies and a coffee or tea on offer. Then moving on with a lovely 2 hours walk into the Griseedale Valley, there will be 2 walk levels… to give chance for some to walk and chat with me, others to push on a bit further, with our walk leader Peter Sowerby. My husband, Charlie, will also be leading a 2-hour run… so 3 options to choose from!

We will all gather at the Inn On the Lake around 1 pm for a soup & sandwich lunch, with cake and a hot drink, in your walk price.


And there may be a short ‘Nicky style’ quiz over lunch too…

In and around the Lake District fells, Nic’s Nordic Walks are organised by Nicola Sproson, to give folk the opportunity to join a ‘gym without walls’, to exercise in the outdoors with spectacular views and to fulfil exercise aims using Nordic Walking poles. This is just such a great way to be outdoors & get fit, come rain or shine, with a low impact activity and using 90% of the bodies muscles.
