Old Crown Round

40 km / 25 miles

Cumbria
A challenge walk over the tops of Skiddaw, Blencathra, Carrock Fell and Great Cockup, which can be achieved in any order. However, the same location must be used for the start and finish of the walk, which must be completed within a maximum time limit of 20 hours. Navigational skills are essential. The walker/runner must decide their own route but the ascent is likely to be over 5000 feet and this is a high-level exposed circuit with some trackless and boggy areas. Completers are asked to record details at the Old Crown Inn where a certificate will be issued free. Originated by the former pub landlord, Michael Cooper, four of the beers sold are named after these tops.

In this the brewery's 21st birthday year (2009), the round is to be updated to include a fifth ale/summit - namely High Pike - in addition to the original Skiddaw, Blencathra, and Great Cockup. Additionally, the start/finish will now be the Old Crown itself rather than just anywhere along the route as before. The new distance is almost 25 miles and involves over 8000 feet of ascent.

A suggested route is shown but this is NOT definitive and walkers taking up the challenge should make up their own route.
