Set Yourself A New Challenge For The Year
On 18 May 2013, Walking With The Wounded launched its inaugural Cumbrian Challenge event. The feedback we received from competitors and the memories created amidst the stunning scenery of the Lake District was enough to convince us that the Cumbrian Challenge would be an annual event for us to enjoy alongside our extraordinary supporters.

The Cumbrian Challenge 2014 event has moved from Patterdale to the stunning village of Grasmere, which is less than 10 miles away from Lake Windermere and will take place on Saturday 14 June. Whilst the format of the weekend event will remain the same, we are doubling the number of participants to 800, comprising 200 teams of 4 competitors per team.

Challenge Yourself To Climb New Heights
RIDE OF THE LIONS – THE TRIPLE CROWN 2014
“The spirit of Rugby on a Bike.”
In 2013, a group of ex British and Irish Lions rugby stars and friends rode 1,000 km from the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne to the ANC Stadium in Sydney, between the 2nd and 3rd Lions test matches. The team consisted of both ex-Lion and ex-Wallaby players and around 30 guests, who managed to raise over £250,000 for Walking With The Wounded.
After the success of the 2013 Ride of The Lions, 2014 brings a new year and a new challenge.
Soon to be announced is the Ride of The Lions – The Triple Crown 2014, which will see an even bigger line-up and group of guests take on a new challenging route that will tour the four legendary stadiums of the the British and Irish Rugby Teams.
Starting at Twickenham and finishing at Murrayfield, the Ride of The Lions – The Triple Crown 2014 is set to be even bigger and better.
