The Peak District is stunning and more than lives up to its reputation as one of Britain’s most inspiring National Parks. It is also home to some equally stunning climbs, including the moorland plateau, Kinder Scout. Part of the moor, at 636 metres (2,087 ft), is the highest point in the Peak District, the highest point in Derbyshire and the highest point in the East Midlands.

The Peaks TrekFest challenge routes encompass an impressive network of footpaths and bridleways, including parts of The Pennine Way and The Pennine Bridleway.

For 2017 there are two route lengths; 25km and 50km.

Both routes will start and finish at ‘The TrekFest Village’ based in Hope Valley where there are loads of facilities available for participants – toilets, showers, camping plots and good food. Come along and camp for the weekend and join everyone else for the BBQ Bonanza on Friday night. Tents, caravans and camper vans are all welcome. Bring the family and make a weekend of it!

We support you every step of the way.

That sponsorship target!

Don’t be over whelmed by it, you’ll make it!

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you might need to do some extra fundraising activities to hit your target (unless you have lots of very generous friends). Who knows, you may even smash it!

When you sign up, you'll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help you with this, it's split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.  

And we’re always on the end of the phone too with support and advice.

Go for it!
