Wilderness Development organise the original Peak District Challenge in September each year

The Peak District Challenge is going ahead (with Covid-19 tweaks) on the night of Friday 16 September and the day of Saturday 17 September 2022, starting in Hathersage at postcode S32 1DU.

If you are looking for a more expensive new event using the same name in July – you have contacted the wrong organisation. Please check your tickets for the name of the company you have booked with. Look at the “from: ” email address your tickets arrived from.

Complaints about the July event should be directed directly to the company organising it. Wilderness Development only organise the original Peak District Challenge event in September each year.
