Since 1981 The Climbers Shop has hosted the log book for the Long Distance Walkers Association Cumbrian Centurion Challenge also known as The Trident Way. This is a high level route for experienced walkers but the beauty is that as long as your take in the three (Trident) peaks of Helvellyn, Skiddaw and Scafell and cover 100 miles on the ground then whatever route you take is entirely up to you. If scrambling is your thing there are plenty of opportunities to make it a technical adventure, if not then there are plenty of footpaths that allow for keen walkers to complete the challenge around some of the most beautiful scenery the Lakes has to offer.
Full details are held on the LDWA website or you can pay a small fee to download a route description and photos at Adventure Guides UK. Better still, you can do your own thing for absolutely free! Why not sign up to our Strava club to keep track on your progress and share routes? Or you could sign up to our newsletter for updates on our special “Anniversary Walks” where you can join members of our staff team along the route along with some very special guests to chat about equipment and our passion for the hills. There will be exciting “Academy Days” too, where those wishing to venture into scrambling can tackle one of the more technical sections with a skilled Guide. Finally, there will be……PRIZES!!! Share your journey around the Cumbrian Centurion Challenge with us on social media using the hashtag #climbersshop60CCC for a chance to be entered in our prize draw for some fantastic kit.
So, use the winter evenings to get planning, put in some training, grab your pack and join The Climbers Shop community on our 60th Anniversary Cumbrian Centurion Challenge!
