Join the Peak District Walk!
Enter this year's Peak District Walk to raise money for deserving causes on 28th April
Walkers of all abilities are invited to take part in Jane Tomlinson's Walk for All 'Peak District Walk', held on Sunday 28th April 2013. The challenge will include three different routes – the 25-mile Dambuster, the 14-mile Hope and Glory and the 5-mile Mini Trekker - and will take place during the popular Peak District Walking & Outdoor Festival.
The event is one of the centrepieces of Walk for All’s new Wake Up To Walking campaign – a new drive to encourage people to discover the great outdoors in a fun and safe environment - and the scenic courses will take walkers past spectacular sights including the Ladybower Reservoir, the Edale Valley, Jacobs Ladder, The Lord’s Seat and Mam Tor.
Proceeds from walk entry fees will go to the Jane Tomlinson Appeal – the legacy set up in the name of the inspirational fundraiser and campaigner. Walkers are encouraged, however, to choose to raise money for one of the Walk’s partner charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Edale Mountain Rescue, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, the Breast Cancer Campaign, Diabetes UK, Heart Research UK, the RSPCA, Sheffield Hospitals and Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Last year's event was hugely-successful and around 1,000 people took part. The Peak District Walk is once again being staged with the support of Visit Peak District & Derbyshire, the area’s official tourist board, and is supported by Northern Rail, the Yorkshire Post, the Peak District National Park Authority and Magic FM.
