A six-day challenge covering 100 miles of terrain in the Lake District may require good walking boots
and waterproof jackets
for those taking part.
The Wainwright Society is re-enacting a trek undertaken by the late Alfred Wainwright with friends in 1931, which begins on May 7th and will raise cash for disability leisure charity the Lake District Calvert Trust.
It has 17 stages on its circular route starting and ending at Windermere, including high mountains such as Scafell Pike and Helvellyn, scrambles like Sharp Edge and Striding Edge and smaller hills such as Catbells.
The walk also takes in Innominate Tarn on Haystacks, the favourite spot of the author, where his ashes were scattered after his death.
Participants have been asked to make a minimum donation of £10 to the trust.
The author became a famous authority on the Lake District when his pictorial guides to the fells were published in the 1950s and 1960s.
