Peak District Edges Challenge

Standard Route Details – 12.5 miles

You guessed it, the Peak District Edges Challenge is a challenge to hike along a number of different edges in the Peak District. The walk is an amazing walk across the National Park, taking in its splendid views and scenery.

The route begins at Ladybower Reservoir, where you will walk from Fairholmes car park, past Derwent Dam then up to Lost Lad and Back Tor, the start of Derwent Edge. From here you will continue on to Stanage Edge, completing the first two, and longest, edges of the walk. At this point, this route will then descend into Hathersage and finish the walk here.

We know that not everyone will want to take on the full 23 mile Nine Edges Challenge detailed below. Therefore, to ensure there is an option for everyone, we have devised this standard route for those that still want to join us for what will be a great day out in the Peaks, but that don’t want to take on the full 23 mile nine edges challenge! This route is 20km | 12.5 miles and will be completed at a pace that caters for all abilities. This is expected to take 6 – 8 hours to complete.

Nine Edges Challenge Route Details – 23 miles

If you want to set yourself a challenge for 2023 this January, then why not consider signing up to the full 23 mile, 9 Edges Challenge Route!

This route follows the same path at as the standard route, starting at Ladybower Reservoir from Fairholmes Car Park, before climbing Lost Lad and Back Tor and passing along both Derwent and Stanage Edge. However, at this point, you will continue to tick off a further 7 edges across the Peak District.

Next will be Upper and Lower Burbage, before heading via the Longshaw Estate and onto edge number 5 – Froggatt Edge. After this, the next two are linked so from here you complete both Curbar Edge then Baslow Edge.

Finally, it’s another transition through a beautiful woods to the final two edges Gardom’s and Birchen Edge. The last edge is just over 1 km from the trig point to the car park, then you’re done! The total length is 36km | 22.4 miles and is expected to take between 9 – 11 hours to complete. You can take a look at the full route on OS Maps here.

Parking and Meeting Point  

The parking and meeting point for both routes will be the Oddfellows Road Car Park, Oddfellows Road, Hathersage, S32 1DU. If this car park is full, then we would advise that you find another local car park or place to park and walk to the meeting point. The car park is pay and display, so make sure you have some money to pay the meter!

Food and Drink  

Please bring adequate food and water to support yourself from start to finish. We advise you start  the day with a large breakfast and bring practical high-energy food (sandwiches, nuts, flapjack, chocolate bars, dried fruit) to sustain you on the hill, with at least 1.5 litres of water to take with you on the walk.

PHASE Worldwide will have a few light refreshments (tea, coffee and fruit) available at the meeting point, and will be providing a meal  at 6pm upon returning to the meeting point after the walk has concluded.

Equipment and Clothing 

Wearing and bringing the correct clothing and equipment makes the day so much more enjoyable and safe. Footwear – a supportive boot that protects the ankle; Waterproofs – it is essential that you  come equipped with a waterproof top and waterproof bottoms; Spare layers – a spare fleece or warm  jacket to have in your rucksack; Hat and Gloves – remember it can be 4 – 5 degrees cooler in the  mountains; Walking clothes – synthetic fibres as oppose to cotton work best to wick away moisture and try layering clothes from a thin layer nearest the skin to a warmer long sleeve layer and finally a  fleece or windproof layer. AVOID JEANS AND/OR TRAINERS. A small torch in your rucksack is a great  habit to get into for hill walking and also bring along any personal medication needed for the day. A spare pair of socks for the end of the walk is always recommended. as it can get rather boggy on the peaty summit. 


The weather can quickly change in the Peaks and thus keeping an eye on the weather forecast near the time is crucial. An update on the weather will be sent to participants closer the time, if the weather is looking particularly hot, wet or windy. 


Please adhere to the restrictions at the time of the event. If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 you must not attend.  


There are public toilets available at the start of the walk at Fairholmes car park and also when you come down from Lower Burbage Edge and walk through the Longshaw Estate.

If bringing a dog, please make sure it is on a fixed lead at all times.
