X-LAKES 2019: Kites that overhead are sailing in the sky

Posted on 07/12/2019

Join me for adventure in the fells, where we'll struggle, survive and ultimately, overcome gravity together. The essence of hike and fly adventure racing, the X-Lakes Paragliding Challenge is set in the Lake District, on the North West coast of England, a mountainous region that forms a National Park. Home of Wordsworth, and the Wainwrights. Our objective: collect as many peaks as we can, by foot or by air, during the weekend race. Hike, or fly? You decide.
