Challenge Walks

Do you want to tackle a 30 mile hike or walk 20,000 steps? Whatever your goal or challenge, hire me for the day and I will tailor a walk to meet your needs and requirements. 

Looking for a new guided challenge walk to push yourself to the next level? You might want some motivation to help you lose weight, try something new or celebrate a milestone birthday. How about peak-bagging or a long distance challenge walk with your friends, family or colleagues? If you hire me as your private guide for the day, I can take the hassle out of route planning and navigation to let you just get on with you challenge and achieve your goal. You should also look out for my Open Walk Challenge Events.

Here are some ideas to get you started for you next challenge walk:

  • Walk a marathon (26.2 miles) or a half marathon (13.1 miles)
  • Edale Skyline Challenge it started as a fell race but now it’s a classic walking route too
  • 10 km Peak Challenge
  • 1,000 m ascent challenge
  • 30,000 step challenge

Prices: £160–200 for a full day (for a group) or £35 each in an Open Walk Challenge Event (minimum of 5 people)
