I have been blown away by the support I have received for my fundraising hiking adventure. I cannot thank each and every one of my sponsors enough, whether they have donated to my hike, provided equipment or funding or accommodation along my route.
They are all brilliant brands I love and I honestly could not do this hike without them.
DO you know what the tallest Peaks in each national park are? Other than Scafell Pike, the tallest Peak in England, I didn’t, However, I have quickly learnt as I not only decided add hiking to the top of each park’s highest peak, but also link my sponsors with some of the tallest peaks in each national park. Here are the top four…
- Scafell Pike in the Lake District, coming in at the top at a cool 3209ft (978m)
- The Cheviot in Northumberland is not too far behind at 2674ft (815m)
- Whernside in the Yorkshire Dales is number 3 at 2415ft (736m)
- Kinder Scout in the home park of the Peak District is 4th place at 2087ft (636m)
In reality most of the top peaks are all in the Lake District, but I wanted to share the love! Below you can see my brilliant sponsors. Thanks all.
Scafell Pike Sponsors
My Scafell Pike sponsors are my lead sponsors. Doing loads to support my hike! I can’t thank Alpkit and Komoot enough for all their support in preparation and promotion of the hike.
Alpkit – Go Nice Places, Do Good Things
Alpkit is a brilliant outdoor clothing and equipment brand. They are local, based on the edge of the Peak District and my family and I have been big fans for years so I couldn’t be happier to have them supporting me. They have provided me with lots of brilliant hiking gear and camping equipment for A Walk in the Parks. Their Foundation is also match funding my £10,000 target with a £10,000 grant fund to share between projects in each national park! Wowee!
Komoot – Find, plan and share adventures
Komoot is super useful route planning app. You can plan routes, follow routes created by others and share your own routes as you go, with key highlights and things to see along the way. There’s a friendly supportive community on there too. Komoot are sponsoring my hike and will be highlighting my routes on their app. You will be able to follow my routes across each national park, including key things to look out for, where to stay and where to eat too!
