Kinder Loop: Wednesday 12th October
From Edale in the beautiful Hope Valley, we take on this tough circuit, climbing to the broad plateau of Kinder Scout. The area is most famous for the day of its historic mass trespass demonstration, that paved the way to today's public rights of way and access to so many beautiful parts of the UK.
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations...

Weather & Kit:
Hill and mountain walking can be hazardous! Not being prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions can lead to over exposure or heat stroke. Layers are key, allowing you to easily adjust your level of warmth. We could experience some nasty weather, so for everyone's safe enjoyment we ask everyone to bring the items specified on the kit list here.
Food & Drink:
Walkers are expected to bring all of the food they need for the walk.
As with kit, make sure you have tried and tested anything you eat during the walks, as you do not know how your body might react.
You are going to be walking all day. You will consume body fat reserves, expel water and salts that need replacing to prevent muscle cramps, dehydration and fatigue. Hydration is the most important aspect of nutrition. It is essential to take on water in regular, small amounts throughout the walk. It is easy to underestimate how much you need and suffer dehydration, particularly in hot weather. Each walker should carry a minimum of 2 litres of fluid; water and sugary drinks. It is important to bring plenty of high energy food and snacks as well as something substantial like a sandwich for lunch. Walkers need to provide their own food and water for the duration of the challenge.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
