Spectrum’s Chief Executive, Dr Linda Harris OBE, undertook ‘10 Peaks in 10 Days’ on 18th June 2021 – a strenuous walking challenge which raised funds for Spectrum’s chosen charity of the year, Cancer Research UK.

What was the 10 Peaks Challenge?  

The 10 Peaks Challenge was a walking challenge through the beautiful Lake District, that took in some of the UK’s highest peaks over 10 days. Each of the 10 walks were challenging in their own way, with scrambling up rocks sometimes required (in particular for Great Gable, Scafell Pike and Helvellyn).

The peaks featured in the challenge were:

  • Friday 18th June – Blencathra
  • Saturday 19th June – Scafell
  • Sunday 20th June – Old Man of Coniston
  • Monday 21st June – Skiddaw
  • Tuesday 22nd June – Bowfell
  • Wednesday 23rd June – Great Gable
  • Thursday 24th June – Great End
  • Friday 25th June – Nethermost Pike
  • Saturday 26th June – Helvellyn
  • Sunday 27th June – Scafell Pike
