The Peak District Challenge
Starting at Bakewell you’ll take a northern loop of the surrounding area, world famous for its outstanding natural beauty. The second half of the challenge will see you follow a southern loop and explore more of the stunning landscapes before returning to basecamp where post race hospitality, food and masseurs await.
The Full 106km event can be done as a continuous challenge or over 2 days, with the option to camp at your halfway point. If you're not ready to take on 106km, challenge yourself to 25km, 52km or 54km routes, while following idyllic paths and experiencing some of the UK’s best views.
"The toughest and most life affirming walk of my life which will provide memories me and my walking partner will never forget!"
