Trek Fest - The Peaks

TrekFest – the UK’s best charity walk returns in 2016! Choose your distance. Choose your charity. Now in its 4th year, TrekFest is fast becoming the UK’s best charity walk. Taking place in one of the UK’s most breath-taking national parks, Peak District. TrekFest offers participants a choice to complete one of four demanding trekking routes:- 100km * 75km * 50km * 25km Participants simply choose their location, choose their distance, and then choose their charity to support! We have partnered with over 400 registered charities and since its conception, TrekFest has raised over £1 million for a variety of causes with over 4,000 participants having gained the coveted TrekFest medal. TrekFest has something for everyone – whether you are new to trekking and want to complete your first 25km, or if you are a seasoned trekker wanting to tackle the extreme 100km (62 miles). Join us for a fantastic weekend in The Peak District 3rd & 4th September 2016. Come and make a weekend of it – we have camping plots at the TrekFest Village and hot food with facilities readily available.
