Ashlie Waite

Ashlie is originally from Kendal and she discovered her passion for hiking and exploring whilst searching for the love of her life. Longing to meet someone who shared her appreciation for the great outdoors and after years of online dating, she realised that she wasn’t going to find them in the traditional way - so she started going on activity dates and discovered something amazing.

Ashlie believes that we are the best version of ourselves when participating in an activity we enjoy. As a result, she created My Adventure Date - organising group activities, mainly hiking. Whether it's forming new friendships, romance or business connections, pushing personal boundaries and meeting new people can make any journey a memorable experience. Fast forward a year and Ashlie found the love of her life - their first date was a sunrise hike with plenty of disasters, a great 'getting to know you' date.

As part of this journey, she took on the challenge of becoming a qualified hill and moorland leader, leading groups for walks in the Peak District, Lake District and local to Altrincham.

Please keep in mind that our hikes are social community walks and not guided. You’re responsible for your own health and safety. Kendal Mountain and My Adventure Date takes no responsibility for any injury or damage that occurs during our community hike. More information and a full disclaimer will be sent out prior to the event.

This event is aimed at adults aged 18+.
