Event descriptionIn the summer of 2022, the 8th Lakes 5 Days event will take place in the English Lake District, home of some of the country’s most beloved scenery and finest orienteering areas. The event will incorporate five individual regional events between Sunday 7th August and Friday 12th August 2022.For those wanting a bit extra there is a plan to have an urban race on the rest day.
Terrain description3 days will be on classic open Lake District fells (open hillside). Many fells look deceptively featureless but contain plenty of features to confuse and challenge. 2 days will be in forested areas where the visibility will be limited and the terrain will be complex.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The Lake District has much to offer, Lakes with boating, quiet lakes in mountainous settings, busy market towns such as Kendal, Keswick and Penrith, and a large number of National Trust properties should the weather force you inside
