The Great Ridge Christmas Walk

November 14

Event Navigation

If you are looking for a way to get into the Christmas spirit then why not join us for a festive trek across the Peak District before heading to Castleton for the Christmas Lights Switch-on!

Your trek will start at 1pm in Castleton where you will be joined by your dedicated guide for a safety briefing, before setting off following the Broken Road up to the top of Mam Tor’. There are many stone steps to the summit itself, and stone carvings along the way.

Once at the top, the valleys of Edale and Hope give breathtaking views across the countryside as the sun starts to set. A roller-coaster path takes you via Hollins Cross, Back Tor and Lose Hill, down to Hope village, where you will enjoy a mince pie or two and a hot drink. Finally a gentle ramble takes you back to Castleton to enjoy the Christmas light switch on.

This is a 10km walk along good paths with some steep sections. Dogs are welcome on a lead but the route does include stiles.Santa hats, mice pies, milled win and hot chocolate are all provided.

How to get your place?

We have 50 places available on this year’s trek, with a minimum of 15 required for the walk to take place. If you would like to join the walk you can purchase tickets on the link below. Tickets cost £35 and we ask that you also raise money for Kidscan through sponsorship or fundraising activities.

How do I fundraise for Kidscan?

Fundraising can be easier than you think! You can set up an online donation page or use one of our paper sponsor forms to get your fundraising off to a great start.

If you want to boost your fundraising you could run a sweepstake, asking people to make a donation in order to guess how many steps you will take on your walk. You can also run your own ‘mini fundraisers’ to raise extra money, which are usually small events like bake sales that are easy to organise and plan.

Terms and Conditions

Please note details of the walk are correct at time of publishing. Always refer to the organisers’ website for the latest information.
