Challenge Date: 4/5 July 2020


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 idyllic Bakewell, which will include a full range of camping options, car parking, and extensive hospitality & welfare services across the weekend - and a full 100km Challenge which takes a tough & varied figure of 8 route through Derbyshire's finest scenery and Peaks - with full support all the way.

This gem in the Heart of England, and with 50km & 25km challenge options also out of our Bakewell Base Camp - this is the Ultra Challenge not to be missed in 2020...

This event is suitable for participants of all abilities, with three distances to choose from:

  • 100km Full Challenge
  • 100km Full Daylight Challenge
  • 51km 1st Half Challenge
  • 49km 2nd half Challenge
  • 25km 1st Quarter Challenge


Access Sport believe all young people should be able to experience the power of sport. However over the past few years the number of people on low incomes participating in sport has fallen nearly 50,000, causing a third of UK children being classified as obese or overweight, side-lining the poor and vulnerable. Your support fundraising and participating in the Peak District Challenge makes a real difference in creating a level playing field, giving under-represented young people regardless of ability, gender, background or ethnicity, the chance to enhance their life prospects through sport.


You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way, leaving you to focus on your challenge!
