Edale Skyline 1 Day Trek

Trek Adventure

This half marathon distance challenge will see us taking in one day of trekking along the Roman Roads, gritstone edges and classic ridges of the Vale of Edale. Be ready for a challenge - and also be ready for a beautiful walk through breathtaking scenery. We shall climb up from Edale, up Jacobs Ladder to Kinder Low, then along past Brown Knoll to Mam Tow, Black Tor and Lose Hill, not dipping below 1,000ft until our return to Edale. Our route will involve a distance of approximately 21km.


Our trek starts and ends in the village of Edale. From here we trek via Jacobs Ladder up the famous Pennine Way to Kinder Scout's peak Kinder Low, then heading South with spectacular views either side of the ridgeline. We then skirt round the horseshoe towards Mam Tor's iron age settlement. Finally, we conclude with a visit to Lose Hill before dropping down back into Edale where a well-deserved drink in the local pub awaits.

What is a Level 3.0 Trekking Challenge Like?

These challenges are either longer, higher, or span several days. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 9 hours trekking. In the case of a multi day trek, you can expect a lower daily duration, but of course the effort is sustained over a longer period. You need to be keen on physical exercise for these events, and to enjoy taking exercise, and do it regularly. Longer duration long haul treks are likely to be easier in terms of the physical walking, however you will need to be more resilient, due to simple living conditions. UK single day or weekend level 3 treks are suited to walkers and trekkers with some previous history of upland walking or alternatively a good amount of lowland training behind them.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Trek’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing very long walks in the countryside; 7 hours plus . You should be doing regular exercise, possibly with some running. Your running speed will be fairly steady; nothing too fast, and you should be able to run a minimum of 4 miles. If you do not run, you should be concentrating on other types of exercise but for longer periods of time (i.e. sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs). These other forms of exercise should be at a moderate to high level. e.g. spinning, circuits, swimming, or other sports.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

You should be used to walking reasonable distances each day to contemplate this trek. It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.
