Great Strides™ Peak District

Fundraising target



We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Great Strides Peak District and Great Strides Yorkshire Dales events for 2021. Having completed a review of our Great Strides event series, we have decided to reduce the number of walks we offer in 2021. This will enable us to focus on the events we keep in the portfolio and make them as successful as possible. The Great Strides Surrey Hills and Brecon Beacons events will still take place in 2021.

This does not mean we are removing the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales locations for good; we are simply working on a strategy to make sure that when we do re-introduce them into our portfolio, we can offer the very best event experience.

Route Details 65km:

  • A circular route of approx. 65km (40 miles)

Starting in the picturesque market town of Castleton, this sponsored walk starts off with a small climb, heading for the summit of the mighty Mam Tor. From there we turn south towards Millers Dale where the route joins the Monsal Trail towards Bakewell and Rowsley. The route then passes through the world famous grounds of Chatsworth Estate and up towards some spectacular scenery and incredible 360 views at Curbar Edge. The final section of the route takes in the quaint villages of Bamford and Hope Valley before arriving safely back in Castleton. 

Route Details 40km:

  • A circular route of approx. 40km (24 miles) 
  • We have a 14-hour target for completing this route 

Also starting in Castleton this new route follows the 65km walk as far South as Millers Dale, while the others join the Monsal Trail you will head North East towards the villages of Tideswell and Great Hucklow. From there you will take in the incredible wilderness of Abney Moor before landing in Hope Valley for a short road section back to Castleton.
