Wilderness Development have organised the Peak District Challenge for nine consecutive years. The event is popular because of it’s fair entry fee, great reputation, and ethical credentials. Alongside plastic-free planning, sustainable routes and vegetarian catering, there is no fundraising commitment, and no cost to any charity, ever.
