Take on our new long-distance trek in the Peak District. By doing so, you’ll help us care for more people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Find yourself in the glorious setting of the Peak District National Park in the heart of England. Starting from the village of Youlgreave, you'll hike 27 miles through valleys, over fields and along river banks – passing through picturesque hamlets and villages along the way.

Is this trek for me?

This is a demanding, long-distance walk which takes approximately 10 to 12 hours to complete. A team of experienced mountain guides will be with you every step of the way, however, an understanding of map reading is advised.

You’ll need a good level of fitness with prior training to take part in this challenge. Training tips will be provided.

Supporting people living with a terminal illness

In 2017 our UK treks raised over £240,000. Every trekker helps us give people living with a terminal illness the care they need. So they can make the most of their last days with those they love.

Why trek for Marie Curie?

By taking on this challenge for Marie Curie you’ll help us care for more people living with a terminal illness. When you join us you’ll get:

  • training hints and tips to get you ready for the big challenge
  • loads of fundraising ideas in your welcome pack
  • a brightly coloured Marie Curie trekking T-shirt
  • a finisher’s medal and refreshments
  • professional mountain guides and check points along the route
  • a chance to experience some of the UKs most beautiful scenery.
It was great to be part of something that was not only a personal challenge, but that brought people together and made a real difference.
