Are you an avid walker, or do you fancy trying your foot at it?
Maybe your looking for a way to raise money for a charity in need of funding… A sponsored hike could well be the way to do it.
Why not set yourselves a real change, let’s just say a 25 mile one?
Today I’m running a fantastic competition here on the blog. I’m offering one of our lucky readers the chance to win a Free registration package for 2 for the following event
Date: Sunday 28th April 2013
Location: Peak District, starting at Hope Sports Field
Time: 7.30 am
A little more about this exciting challenge. The Dambuster (25 mile* walk):
The Dambuster is a magnificent 25-mile* walk in the Peak District and forms the perfect backdrop for walkers looking for a challenge in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Incorporating a varied terrain and breath-taking views over the valleys, Ladybower Reservoir, Edale and Win Hill, you will be walking over stunning Jacob’s Ladder before returning along Mam Tor and Lose Hill. What more could you ask for from a charity event?
*Please note, distances are currently approximate and are subject to change. Walkers will need to complete the walk within a maximum of 11 hours although we estimate the vast majority of people will complete the walk between 6.5 and 9 hours.
It is recommended that walkers in this event are aged 16 and over (all participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian over 18 at all times).
The prize includes
Registration from 6.30am
Personal walker number
Downloadable guide book containing detailed route information
Emergency pack including a whistle and foil blanket
Great send off at the official start at 7.30 am
Well marshalled course
Regular checkpoints including water points, first aid and toilet provision
Warm welcome back to the finish where you will receive a finisher’s souvenir and well deserved congratulations
This is a fantastic opportunity and by winning this prize it would mean that you won’t need to worry about covering the registration fees before raising funds for your chosen charity.
So… How about it? A challenge of a lifetime set amongst an amazing backdrop of beauty.
