Its that time of year again and the hard working folks over at Peak District Challenge have cooked up another 2 days of walking around the stunning Peak District on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th August.

Sticking with last years winning format there are a number of challenges to suit the amount of time you have and where your at fitness wise.

There’s also a very detailed FAQ Page Here that explains the walks and other things you need to know about your day.


Lending a Hand

As with any event of this size you can never have enough people on the ground helping to get everything organized and make sure the event runs smoothly. If your not up for doing one of the walks maybe you could spare a little bit of time by volunteering to lend a hand at this years event. More information on volunteering can be found at Peak District Challenge/volunteers Needed

salvlogoThis years charity event is run in aid of SALVE International and their work in finding homes for Ugandan street children. As always you can use the walks to fundraise for SALVE international or any other charity of your choosing.
