Peak District Challenge 2023

Bakewell, Peak District


Sign up

Walk, jog or run the Peak District Challenge to raise money for children when they need us most.

2023 registration now open! Starting in Bakewell you'll take a northern loop of the surrounding area, world-famous for its outstanding natural beauty. The second half of the challenge will see you follow a southern loop and explore more of the stunning landscapes before returning to basecamp where post-race hospitality, food and masseurs await.

The full 100km event can be completed as a continuous challenge or over two days, with the option to camp at your halfway point. If you're not ready to take on 100km, challenge yourself to 50km or 25km routes while experiencing idyllic paths and breathtaking views.
