The Peak District Challenge is a trail running or trekking challenge that offers four levels of difficulty: 

25km (Copper)
50km (Bronze)
75km (Silver)
100km (Gold Ultra).

Each distance has a target time to try to beat, from 9 hours to hike 25km, up to 24 hours to walk or run the huge 100km Gold Ultra Peak District Challenge.

Support and Refreshments

Motivation and encouragement are provided at Checkpoints with water top ups and refreshments. Checkpoints are spread out every 10km around the course on average. A stew supper on Saturday evening is all included in the price of your entry.

Our professional, qualified safety teams monitor teams’ safety throughout. Each team’s GPS tracker allows HQ to see each team’s exact location at any time, at any point around your challenge route, not just at checkpoints.

Teams can self-navigate using our printed route-guides and GPX files, or join a led walking group accompanied by a fully qualified mountain leader.

Four Distances to choose from

The routes all start at Hathersage (starred) and are anticlockwise loops. 

Visit http://goo.gl/maps/r6ulJ for a closer look at the provisional routes. Final routes are revealed to entrants 7 days before the event. You can self-navigate round the challenge using the provided route guide, or there is the option of joining a guided walking group on the 25-75km distances.

The Copper 25km Challenge follows the red line from Hathersage to Baslow. It can be walked or run, and is an achievable challenge for those who’ve done some walking before.

The Bronze 50km Challenge follows the orange line on this map past Castleton then Tideswell and Baslow. It can be walked or run, and is achievable by those who have done lots of walking (or some running) beforehand. 

 

The Silver 75km Challenge takes the silver route shown, covering large distances over relatively less hilly terrain. Suitable for those who have spent significant time travelling on foot and navigating by night.

The Gold Ultra 100km Challenge follows mainly the outermost route, following the yellow line shown above between checkpoints. It’s the longest and steepest route, suitable for experienced night runners with navigation skills.
