The route is designed to be challenging but is achievable for most people provided you train well in advance. When you sign up we’ll be available to help you prepare.

The minimum age limit for challenge is 14. All participants must be at least 14 on event day.

If you’re under 18 you’ll need an adult to take part with you, who also needs to sign up online and fundraise.

You will need to be able to carry all essential kit required for the challenge e.g waterproofs, layers, water (minimum 2 litres), sun cream, snacks. Check the kit list to be sure of everything you will need.

Make sure you have trained with your backpack, carrying everything you need, so that you are used to hiking with your pack at full weight.

We hike on varied and undulating terrain. Some sections may be muddy if it has rained so wearing suitable footwear is essential.

The 23 miles should take approximately 9-10 hours but can take some walkers up to 13 hours. The 13 miles should take approximately 5-6 hours but can take some walkers up to 9 hours.

We carry on! Do make sure you check the kit list and come prepared for all types of weather.

No, we’re afraid not, everyone taking part needs to be fully registered and fundraising.

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted to take part in the hike due to safety issues and due to us hiking on privately owned land.

They are welcome to remain at the start or end points with friends and family but must be kept on a lead and the person looking after them is responsible for cleaning up any mess.

There is limited parking available at Edale S33 7ZQ, where you will start and finish the 23 mile hike. It costs £7 for 24 hours. There is also limited parking at Edale train station, S33 7ZA,  which costs £7 for 24 hours, or Hope train station, S33 6RR, the finish point if you embarking on the 13 mile hike. Please note that both start points are at Edale car park, so if you choose to park at Hope, you will need to ensure there is ample time to get the train to Edale. There is overspill parking available on certain days throughout the year and this is provided by the Parish Council. Cost is £5 per day and funds raised from the overspill car park go to village groups and charities. See signposts on days the overspill is operating.

Start times for the hike is 06:00am for both the 23 mile route and 13 mile route.

We recommend arriving 30 minutes before your start time so you can grab breakfast, meet the team, and prepare for your hike.
