Official Statement regarding COVID-19

Following the escalation of COVID-19, sadly we are cancelling the Great Strides Scafell Pike Trek Weekend. Across the country and the world, everyone is coming to terms with the current situation in relation to the Coronavirus. At the Trust we are aware that this is hugely concerning for the cystic fibrosis community and we must ensure that everyone’s health and safety is our utmost priority.

Whilst we understand how disappointing this decision will be, we have not made it lightly and sincerely apologise to everyone who has signed up for these events. We are very grateful for all your support, training and fundraising, to-date.

The Events team are now in the process of planning a new date for the event for next year, and will update this page when all the details are confirmed. We do hope you will be able to join us in 2021.

If you have any queries, please contact our team at or telephone 020 3795 2176 and we will be happy to help. Thank you so much for all you do for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

This event takes place from 1st to 3rd May 2020 with the trek taking place on Saturday 2nd May, please see the itinerary for more information.
