Wonderful run or walk through the beautiful Peak District Countryside. The event starts and finishes at Hartington Village Hall. There are two routes, one for the 15 mile event and one for the 16 mile event. There are drinks and snack stations at strategic points throughout the route. This is a popular charity event, organised by the Matlock Rotary Club and this year we are supporting Skin Cancer research.
Event details and schedule
Both walks, organised by The Rotary Club of Matlock in accordance with the guidelines of the LDWA, start and finish at Hartington Village Hall.
The Challenge covers a little over 26 miles and the Ramble 15 miles, both almost entirely on footpaths and trails through the White Peak area of the Peak District.
The Challenge goes north along the Dovedale valley towards the limestone peaks of Chrome Hill and Parkhouse, then to Longnor. Turning south the walk climbs up onto the Staffordshire Moorlands before crossing the Manifold Valley and over into Wolfscote Dale before turning north back to Hartington. The walk is in the National Park with approximately 4030 feet of ascent.
The 15 mile Ramble uses part of the Challenge route.
There is an 11 hour time limit for both events.
