    25k route

    We leave the Event Village with the other route and head straight through Castleton. We will then get a feel of the beautiful Peak District countryside as we arrive at Hollins Cross, followed by walking through Edale. As we exit Edale we leave the other route behind and continue towards Nether Booth Farm and the beautiful Ladybower Reservoir. The route will join the reservoir path and follow the reservoir before heading back to the Event Village.

    50k route

    We leave the Event Village with the other route and head straight through Castleton. We will then get a feel of the beautiful Peak District countryside as we arrive at Hollins Cross, followed by walking through Edale. As we exit Edale we leave the 25km route and join the Pennine Way which will lead us up and over Kinder Scout. Once we have summited, we will descend into Hayfield before following distinguished paths until we reach Peak Forest. Our route back will be on country roads before entering Hope and back to the Event Village.
