13/14 JULY 

The Peak District Challenge is like no other Ultra Challenge; starting finishing at our 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 our 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. We've 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. The Full 100km, with 1,800 metres of climb, can be done as a continuous Challenge - or as a 'Daylight 2 Day' option with camping at halfway.

There's also Half and Quarter distance options available - so there's a Challenge here for everyone!
