Lyke Wake Walk - one of the best walking challenges in the UK

 

The Lyke Wake Walk is a 40 mile walking challenge across the highest and widest part of the North York Moors National Park in Yorkshire  


Like Wake Walk challenge across the North York Moors

The Lyke Wake Walk is one of the UK's oldest walking challenges and is a complete crossing of the North Yorkshire Moors from Osmotherley in the west to Ravenscar on the east Yorkshire coast. It was one of the most popular walking challenges in the 1970's and 80's but others have become more popular since then

It's a tough 40 mile walk across Moorland and the challenge is to do it in 24 hours, which I plan to do with a load of mates in 2023 and in doing so try and raise some sponsorship funds. I'm currently in research mode and below is the route I plan to take and screenshots of the OS Maps, if you have any tips - by all means please share them!

If you don't have a Phone Map App - I really recommend the one by Ordnance Survey. You can download route maps to your phone such as this one and the app will show you exactly where you are on the route even when you have no signal - so no more taking a wrong turn :-)
