The Peak District is home to stunning scenery and more than lives up to its reputation as one of Britain’s most inspiring National Parks. Both routes start in the beautiful Hope Valley – the heart of the Peak District home to picturesque and ancient landscapes. The 25km route encompasses part of the enchanting Ladybower reservoir and the 50km route summits Kinder Scout – a moorland plateau that at 636m (2,087ft) is the highest point in the Peak District, Derbyshire and the East Midlands! Join us and discover the rugged beauty of the Peaks for yourself!
We leave the Event Village with all other routes and head straight through Castleton. We will then get a feel of the beautiful Peak District countryside as we arrive at Hollins Cross, followed by walking through Edale. As we exit Edale we leave the 25k and continue by joining the Pennine Way which will lead us up and over Kinder Scout. Once we have summited we will descend into Hayfield before following distinguished paths until we reach Peak Forest. Our route back will be through farmers’ fields before we meet the road through the town of Bradwell and villages of Brough, Shatton and Aston before heading back to the Event Village.
