Bronze Challenge – 50km, 12hours

Silver Challenge – 75km.Walk in 24 hours or run in 13 hours.
2000m of ascent. Not to be underestimated, this route follows the easiest and flattest routes between eight checkpoints, but covers a long distance. For determined walkers or joggers. Hope Valley – Ladybower Valley – Castleton – Tideswell – Baslow – Hope Valley
Gold Challenge – 100km, 24hours
With extra ascent (3200m in total), to make the 24 hour target you’ll need to average 4kph.

You’ll visit high points and viewpoints on your way between checkpoints, and there is a lot of climbing involved.
