This NEW event is set to welcome up to 3,000 adventurers into the fabulous Peak District National Park.

Expect a major 'Base Camp' hub set-up in idyllic Bakewell, which will include a full range of camping options, car parking, and extensive hospitality and welfare services across the weekend.

Distance options

The fully supported 100km Challenge takes a tough and varied figure of 8 route through Derbyshire's finest scenery and Peaks.  With 1,800 metres of climb, this can be done as a continuous Challenge, or as a 'Daylight 2 Day' option with camping at halfway.

50km and 25km challenge options are also available out of the Bakewell Base Camp.

What to expect

The Peak District Challenge is like no other Ultra Challenge; starting finishing at the basecamp hub in Bakewell the Full 100km route takes a northern loop of the surrounding area - known for it's outstanding natural beauty before returning back to basecamp, marking the end of the challenge for some.

Those on the Full 100km and 2nd Half will then venture out on a southern looped route exploring more of this incredible place. 

There is camping all weekend for you and your supporters - it will be a weekend to remember! 

Whether you're a walker and new to endurance events, or even a marathon runner looking to 'up' the distance - you'll get the best support and hospitality through day and night.
