The Seafarers' Charity (formerly Seafarers UK) is excited to announce the 2022 return of its much-loved flagship event, the 24 Peaks Challenge, following cancellation for the past two years due to the pandemic.

2 days. 33 miles. 13,000 ft ascent
Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July 2022
Basecamp: YHA Ambleside, Lake District

We'll be raising vital funds to support those who work at sea and their families, and we'd love Nautilus members and staff to take part. Your team will consist of at least four walkers and one driver, who will be responsible for transporting your team to and from basecamp

Can we do it?
The simple answer is yes! You do not need to be a seasoned mountaineer to achieve 10-14 hours of hiking each day. But you do need a good base-level fitness and a commitment to training before the event. You will be fully supported by our events team, who will provide you with all the information you need to take part from essential kit lists, mountain safety and training tips.

Why should we take part?
'There is a great atmosphere in the teams and at YHA Ambleside, the magnificent scenery, the changing and challenging conditions and the fact that it is supporting a great charitable cause.' - Asbjorn Kops, Maersk
