About the Peak District Challenge 2024 by Wilderness Development

Bronze 50km, 2023

A brilliant event [...] The 50k was my first ultra distance event and I honestly loved every minute of it. Beautiful route, excellent organisation, friendly and helpful volunteers and tasty snacks - all the the ingredients for a superb day out. The lack of a mass start made it much more chilled, and helpfully, you managed to get perfect weather conditions too. Well done!



Gold Ultra 100km, 2022

A really enjoyable, well organised and friendly event. The whole thing ran very smoothly. Communication before the event, instructions, checkpoints, parking etc etc, all seamless. Peak District is stunning, this is a great way to experience it. Definitely recommend giving it i go.



Copper 25km, 2022

Exceptional check points in stunning locations, choice of supplies to help fuel along the route. Great public transport links, also off road parking for those that choose to drive. The ‘cafe’ gives you the option of a drink/food pre race and again at the end where a delicious hot meal was served, all included in the entry price. This race has a lovely calm feel about it, very friendly event with several distance options.
