Gold Ultra: 100km (62miles), 3000 metre ascent.


Peak District Challenge provides:

  • Fully qualified, professional mountain leaders supporting the event and your safety
  • Drinks and snacks on the way round
  • A stew supper on arrival back in Hathersage on Saturday evening
  • Kit guidance, route plans and briefing
  • A goodie bag, certificate, photos and t-shirt
  • Fundraising materials and support


Rally together your team of 3-5 people, or just let us know you’re in and we can match you with other trekkers or runners.  Please encourage family, friends and other organisations to join us!  Adequate fitness and navigation skills are required.


Entrance fees

Pay the entrance fee yourself and fundraise what you can. (Fees are £39 - £54).  There will be prizes for top fundraisers. Join a mountain leader guided group for £10 extra.  Registration is via our website link below.


The Cause

The Y's vision is for every homeless young adult in Leicestershire to have a safe place to call home and the support they need to create lasting change in their lives. 


Your money will help a young person to become independent, for example by providing a basic welcome pack, or help with furniture, education, personal development or specialist support.
