Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

We will be providing a covid secure event as per all government guidelines.

The health and safety of you, our participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

Here’s how we’ll keep you safe at the 10in10 and Family 5in5;

On arrival at the event please follow directions from our 10in10 marshals who will direct you to your parking and then to the start of the event. Once at the Swinside Inn, you will be expected to be in your ‘Team/Bubble’ to register. Please follow the one way systems at all times. (Please note there may be a 1/2 mile walk to the start of the event, from some parking areas.

Each team will have a sign on time to arrive at the Swinside Inn for registration. This will be staggered in 15 minute intervals.

There will be hand sanitiser provided which you must use.

We’ll be minimising what we hand out so please bring your own bottle of water and be prepared for wrapped only snacks at the feedstation. Our feedstation team will serve you a light snack on an individual paper plate.

What you can do to keep safe:

Please respect social distancing before, during and after the event.

When you have finished your walk, please move away from the finish line/Swinside Inn sign out table, so it is safe for other participants when they return.

The 10in10 and Family 5in5 is finished once you return from the walk. Due to Covid restrictions we are unable to have an after event party in 2021.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone that has symptoms please do not attend the event.

We ask that all participants and volunteers do a covid test the night before the event.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you again for registering for the 10th Annual 10in10 or Family 5in5 on Saturday 19th June. Whichever course you’ve chosen, it’s going to be an amazing day, a huge achievement, and a day to remember. We will be sending further information in due course, specific to your chosen event. In the meantime, please get your accommodation booked as soon as possible and please take a look at our FAQ section on our website. You will find lots of useful information on our website including training and fundraising top tips.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to set up a fundraising page, we really recommend setting up a JustGiving page. It’s super quick and easy to get going, and to send out to friends, family and colleagues who’d like to sponsor you. To get started with your page just click the link here.

We can’t wait to see you at The Swinside Inn  for more adventures on the beautiful lake district fells.

Best wishes and happy training :)

Who We Are

Who We Are

The annual 10in10 challenge was designed and created by Yvonne Booth in 2011. It was her response to her husband Duncan's diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 2010 at the age of 39. As a wife and mother of three sons, she wanted to do something positive and help raise money for research into this cruel illness. find out more →

"This a highly enjoyable challenge and whether completing the 10in10 or the 5in5, I have never seen anyone returning at the end of the walk without a broad smile on their face ready for the excellent post-event raffle and party!" John & Sophie
