The Severn Trent Mountain Challenge

Challenge yourself in the beautiful Peak District


Event information

Challenge yourself to trek 10, 20 or 30 miles through the challenging terrain and glorious views of the Peak District.

Date: Saturday 6 July 2024
Registration deadline: 26 June 2024
Location: Tittesworth Reservoir, near Leek, Staffordshire
Registration fee (per person): £30 early bird/£35 after 2 April 2024

About the challenge

Setting off from Tittesworth Reservoir Visitor Centre, you'll self-navigate across the edge of the Peak District, flexing your map-reading and orienteering skills along the way.

Take on some exhilarating inclines – and enjoy spectacular views from the top! – before descending back to the reservoir for refreshments and hot food.

All funds raised will go towards our work to bring clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to communities in Bangladesh, supported by the Severn Trent WaterAid committee.

Route options

How to register

You can choose to take on the 10, 20 or 30 mile routes as a self-navigating team, or you can join a 10 mile guided walk as an individual – perfect if you're new to hiking, or less confident in your orienteering skills!

To register as a team of between three and seven people:

  1. Decide on your team, choose which distance you want to take on, and nominate a team captain.
  2. The team captain must register first – you'll be prompted to create a team, which the rest of the group can then join.
  3. All remaining participants must then register and join the team.

All participants need to register and provide up-to-date contact details, which will be used in case of emergency.Register now


We'll send all registered participants the challenge event pack nearer the time, which contains everything you need to know about taking part, including how to prepare, what to expect on the day, the challenge rules, and what to do in case of any problems. Please make sure you read it carefully!

The pack also includes your medical card and car park voucher. All participants must print out and complete the medical card, keeping it with you at all times throughout the event.
