We are extremely excited to announce our first ever 'Great Walkathon'! Set in the beautiful English countryside, you are sure to enjoy this challenge! Taking place in October, you will be captivated by the picturesque scenery, immersing yourself in the beautiful colours of autumn along the way. We have recently made this challenge even bigger and better by adding in a new additional 13 mile walk, so we now have two fantastic options to choose from! Both walks will take place on the same day, starting from the same location in Hartington. This is a chance for everyone and anyone to take part, read on to find out more... Option one – 6 dales walk AKA ‘The Big One’ Join us for an enduring walk in the tranquil setting of the White Peak and the Peak District National Park. Running through the valleys and farmlands of the six dales, you will be able to absorb yourself in spectacular views along the way. But this challenge isn't for the faint-hearted! This guided walk will test your endurance at 26 miles and 1000 metres of ascent, it's a big day out that we aim to complete in under 12 hours.
Option two – The Half Marathon
If you like the sound of the walk but are looking for something a little more relaxed, we have the perfect option for you! Starting from the same location in Hartington, we are extremely excited to announce this additional brand new 13 mile route.
This guided walk will take you through Lathkill Dale, one of the prettiest of the Derbyshire Dales. This Peak District treasure offers stunning views and the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life. At 13 miles, this half marathon walk still offers the element of challenge, but you don’t need to be an advanced walker to take part!
Are you up for the challenge?! We hope so! Only just over an hour's drive away, this event isn't too far from our base in Birmingham and at £30 (plus booking fee), you don't need to break the bank to take part. We are looking for a team of people to sign up and fundraise for Acacia. So what are you waiting for, let's do this!
