Poppy Trek

13 August @ 12:00 am - 14 August @ 12:00 am


The Royal British Legion is encouraging people to sign up for this year’s Poppy Trek events taking place on the 13th and 14th of August, to raise vital funds for service personnel, veterans and their families.  

Fundraisers will have the opportunity to hike one of two iconic routes – a 9-mile trek to England’s highest war memorial at the summit of Scafell Pike, or a 9-mile trek to Great Gable, its beautiful neighbouring mountain and a brand-new route for 2022. 

Both the 9-mile and 6-mile routes will take participants through the picturesque and unique landscapes of the Lake District before reaching the 963-metre or 886-metre peak. After stopping to take in the views across Cumbria, participants will share a moment of reflection in a minute’s silence, paying tribute to the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces community past and present.
