Each year we organise a fundraising walk in the Peak District called the A4D True Grit Challenge.

In 2019, 55 walkers trekked a total of 1,900 miles in 24 hours!

Some Rules …

  • Participants must follow the route as described in the route card.
  • Gold participants need to make it to the halfway station inside 11 hours and to Calver (37 miles) by midnight in order to continue beyond those points.
  • Unless agreed beforehand, walkers will not be allowed to walk beyond the halfway point alone.
  • The route covers some sensitive areas of the Peak District during nesting season. To that end, we’re really sorry but dogs are not allowed.
  • Please be exceptionally polite to everyone supporting this event: they’re a volunteer giving up their time to make this day happen.
