About this event

The flagship UK trekking challenge is back for its 7th year in 2019 and will be bigger than ever. Choose your location, choose your distance and choose the size of your team as you take on the mountains!

Join a 25KM or 50KM trek in two exciting challenge locations in the Peak District and Brecon Beacons. All routes are fully supported with experienced mountain leaders, challenge leaders, route guides and first aid. There are rest stops and checkpoints along the way offering complimentary food, drinks and a celebratory glass of bubbly, hot meal and well-deserved medal at the finish line! What more could you ask for?

"It's nice to be normal and do fun things as that sort of goes out the window when they're having treatment". We were delighted to welcome over 200 guests to @altontowers last month, all of whom have been affected by childhood cancer in some way.
