The Derbyshire Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in Derbyshire in 12 hours.

Thee Derbyshire Three Peaks are Kinder Scout, Bleaklow, and Higher Shelf Stones. We normally complete them in that order, but it is possible to go other ways.

We meet in Hayfield on Friday or Saturday evening for a kit check and briefing, starting early the next morning aiming to complete the challenge in the early evening in time for dinner!

2020 Price £50 per person

This is a tough event and people participating should have the necessary fitness and also be properly equipped.

The course is guided by qualified mountain leaders and first aiders.

We regularly run this adventure at the weekend, Saturday or Sunday, however if you would like to do this at any other time, including midweek, then please contact us.
