Trail Takeover

The Trail Takeover - Follow the route, Experience the rewards

On Saturday 26th August, we teamed up with our friends at ViewRanger to take over three trails across the UK; setting routes for you to follow with rewards and experiences hidden along the way.

Hundreds of people joined us on a journey into the outdoors and shared their #TrailTakeover experiences for the chance to win the top-notch prize of a 3 night, 5-star, Lake District adventure holiday, worth up to £2,000.

Re-trace the experience below and keep posted for details on our competition winner.

Psst: our routes are still available to download (for free!) on ViewRanger there’ll be no rewards hidden in the hills – ours crews have packed up and gone home - but we can guarantee a trail you can get stuck into; that’s steep in places but well worth the effort with views-a-plenty.
