Are you up for a challenge?

With the excesses of Christmas and the New Year on the horizon its traditionally the time we think of resolutions and challenges to aim for in 2018.

Living in the Lake District gives us lots of options of you’re an outdoor kind of person but why not set yourself one for when you visit this year. A New Year challenge to plan for, train for, a focus for your next holiday in this amazing part of the world.

I've just entered the 1500m once around the island Derwent water swim at the Keswick Mountain Festival and you also get a free concert ticket – so do any of you swimmers or wannabe open water swimmers fancy joining me? If swimming isn't your cup of tea, there are options for runners, triathletes, and cyclists too. Click on the link for more info and to book your spot.

Sunday 10th June. That gives us 6 months to prepare – go on... join me!
