Peak District Nine Edges Challenge
The Peak District Nine Edges Challenge is a more intense version of our Peak District Nine Edges Weekend. You’ll cover all nine edges and all 21 miles in a single day, making this great preparation for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge or one of our more demanding overseas treks. Test your fitness and take in some stunning views with little commitment or time away from home. A great mini-adventure!

Combine a cream tea with a challenging & stunning Peak District walk?
Experience a local Sheffield ale in the home of the Full Monty or three lions? This is a genuine experience combined with the beauty of the peak district that is hard to forget. Gritstone edges, vivid purple heather and amazing skies all await you. We cater for groups of up to 25 people, 1 guide per 8 challengers. We can arrange an extra climbing experience on one or more of the edges on request.
9 Edges Peak challenge over a day
We start at Fairholmes visitor centre by Ladybower Reservoir and finish at the Robin Hood pub in Baslow. We start at 8am at the visitor centre where you will meet your guide and take it from there. You can see from the distance that this is a serious challenge. Even walking at an average of 3-4km per hour it could take 10 – 12 hours. For this reason we only run the one day challenge in June, July, August and October.
