Explore one of the UK’s most picturesque National Parks, the Peak District!
Join us and discover the rugged beauty of the Peak District – are you tough enough to take on the TrekFest?
TrekFest is the UK’s ultimate trekking challenge. Take on an epic trek through open countryside in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire walking side by side with hundreds of like-minded individuals all with the same goal in mind – to cross the finish line.
Taking on TrekFest is no walk in the park by any means – it’s tough and set to challenge you by pushing you further, beyond your limits, both mentally and physically. Determination is a must but with the right training it is achievable, as thousands of trekkers over the last five years will testify!
The TrekFest Village
We start and end at the TrekFest Village which is located at Hope Showground, Marsh Farm, Castleton, Derbyshire.
There are plenty of facilities available at the event village throughout the weekend – toilets, showers, camping plots and food & drink. Joins us for a delicious BBQ and a drink at the TrekFest bar on the Friday night before the challenge gets underway the next day. Tents and camper vans are all welcome so bring your support network and make a weekend of it!

About the ticket
If you buy your ticket directly from the organizer, it would cost you £100. We are willing to cover the cost of your entry.
All we ask is that you create a Just Giving page and point it to our charity. As soon as you have raised £250, we will buy a ticket and email you the details so you can log into the TrekFest website and claim your ticket. We have a requirement that you must have a minimum of £250 in donations (not including Gift Aid) which help to cover our costs for the event. We would ask that you do your best to get as much money as you can and not just to aim for the £250 and then stop. Our charity is run solely from donations by the general public and we need your help to continue to support those affected with Alpha-1 and their families.
Once you have reached the minimum amount and it is closer to the event, we will send you either a T-Shirt or Vest (these are dry wicking technical running tops, the same type the professionals use), the same as the team in the photo at the top of the page are wearing.
While we will all be there as a team, we know that everybody will have their own pace and will want to go at different speeds. We ask that we can go over the start line together, but after that everybody can go off as individuals or stay with others who are doing the same pace. Emma and Alan Wooler will be trying our hardest to beat the 6 hour mark, you are more than welcome to stay with us if you would like.
