About the event

This challenge will welcome 2,000 adventurers into the fabulous Peak District National Park. We'll have a major 'base camp' hub set-up in the idyllic town of Bakewell - a gem in the Heart of England.

The 'base camp' will include a full range of camping options, car parking, extensive hospitality and welfare services across the weekend. The full 100km Challenge will take a tough and varied figure of eight route through Derbyshire's finest scenery and peaks with full support all the way.

With it's 50km and 25km Challenge options also out of our Bakewell base camp, this is the Ultra Challenge not to be missed in 2022.

Your entry includes free food and drinks at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
