I love running and hiking in the fells, got my CP in 2019.  Made the mistake of moving from Cumbria to the flatlands of Cambridge but fly in the Lakes when possible.  Cannae wait for my first X-Lakes!

Malvern (MHGC) Club although live in London 8 years PG experience but mainly a holiday flier in the French Alps (mostly Laragne) each year. With the onset of parenthood decided that now is the time to try and commit more time to paragliding (now or never?!) so starting out on the UK scene and comps to gain experience.

I live in Cockermouth and qualified CP in September 2020. This will be my second X-Lakes one-day competition but I'm hoping to do a bit more flying and less hiking this year. Planning to get out for lots of training over the next few months... I'll need it!! Right, where's my beer.

I have been flying since the end of the last century.  Never flown in the Lake District and am looking forward to it.

I have enjoyed many thrill sports on land and water so I figured why not try something airbourne.  Totally addicted to paragliding. I Love the feeling of freedom and potential.  I still have such a lot to learn but I am excited and looking forward to new experiences.

A lifelong passionate aviation enthusiast thanks to my grandparents being glider pilots.  New to paragliding and not the fittest of hikers... This is more of a challenge to myself and the race at the back of the field than expecting a high-end result but I would love to pursue the hike and fly events and watch myself climb up ladder over the years!

Husband, father, brother, 53 years young and loving life, I'm not super fit but I'll give it a go... Rock climber, paraglider and mountain biker. Relatively new to paragliding 2-3 years, never tried hike and fly but keen to learn new aspects of the sport. The LCC coaching event last year was a real highlight for me, flying from clough to Grasmere was magical. My goal in the academy is to finish the task, learn something and meet some nice people.
