How Far Will You Go? UK's Biggest 24hr Trail Race

The Peak District Challenge 2020 is an individual or team, walking or running event. It takes place on the night of Friday 18 September and the day of Saturday 19 September 2020, starting in Hathersage, Hope Valley.

The event has been running since 2013. Organised by Wilderness Development, a Peak District-based adventure activity provider, offering year-round adventure and challenge events.

There are 5 Routes to choose from:

Back Before Dark – 10km

You’ll start your Back Before Dark challenge with one inescapable and non-negotiable deadline. You must cover 10km, and try to be Back Before Dark. Designed for runners who’ve trained for a 10km run.

Copper Challenge – 25km, 9hours

An achievable challenge, following a circular route from Hathersage to Baslow along riverside paths and back along a hilly route via Curbar and Frogatt edges. 700m of ascent and some of the best views in the Peak!

Bronze Challenge – 50km, 12hours

The Bronze Challenge has a total ascent of 1200m and at its highest point reaches 464m. A 50km circular route taking in the valleys of the dark peak, and the scenic trails of the southern peak district.

Silver Challenge – 75km Walk in 24 hours or run in 13 hours

2000m of ascent. Not to be underestimated, this route follows the easiest and flattest routes between eight checkpoints, but covers a long distance. For determined walkers or joggers.

Hope Valley – Ladybower Valley – Castleton – Tideswell – Baslow – Hope Valley

Gold Challenge – 100km, 24hours

With extra ascent (3200m in total), to make the 24 hour target you’ll need to average 4kph. The ultimate Peak District challenge, and should be attempted by fit and experienced hillwalkers 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.
