Event date: 15-16 September 2023
The Peak District Challenge is a picturesque trekking challenge that offers five levels of difficulty for hill walkers and runners: 10km (Back before Dark), then 25km (Copper), 50km (Bronze), 75km (Silver) or 100km (Gold Ultra).
Each distance has a target time to try to beat, from a manageable 3 hours to walk 10km and be Back Before Dark, up to a huge 24 hour target to complete the 100km Gold Ultra Challenge.
Featuring 3300m of ascent, the 100km Gold Ultra route is the ultimate Peak District Challenge and should be attempted by teams of fit and experienced trekkers or runners who want to see the best that the Peak District has to offer.
You’ll visit high points and viewpoints on your way between checkpoints, and there is a lot of climbing involved. You’ll leave Hathersage at 9pm on the night of Friday 18 September 2020. Night navigation experience is essential.
To be successful, you’ll need to maintain over 4kmph to complete the Gold Challenge inside your 24 hour target. If you fail to meet a cutoff on the Gold challenge, you will be able to continue on the 75km Silver route, which follows the shortest, flattest distance between checkpoints.
Shorter distances at lower entry fees are also available. Please visit our website for full info: https://www.peak-district-challenge.com
