The Walk Day In Case of Emergency (ICE) phone number has changed. It is now 0777 888 4020. The new number will be printed on lanyards and route cards.

Rake Cross Roads (CP6)

Rake Cross Roads

  • Miles to go: 8.90

The emergence of the wind turbines on the top of the moor indicates you are approaching the summit and Rake Cross Roads Checkpoint gives you an opportunity to rest prior to attempting the final half mile of ascent.

  • Toilets – at Checkpoint
  • Drinks – at Checkpoint
  • First Aid – at Checkpoint
  • No support vehicles

Walkers who reach Rake Cross Roads after 6:30pm will be stopped at this point, for their own protection, and to safeguard the volunteer marshals further down the route. This is non-negotiable. Transport will be provided to the finish.

As you approach the top of the moor the views can be fantastic. Behind you are the peaks of the Lake District, many some 30 miles into the distance where you started your trek.
