The Severn Trent Mountain Challenge

Challenge yourself in the beautiful Peak District


Event information

The perfect event for teams to take a break from busy schedules, put their heads together and trek their way through the challenging terrain and glorious views of the Peak District.

Details of the 2023 challenge coming soon!

About the challenge

Setting off from Hope Valley College, you'll self-navigate across the glorious Dark Peak area, 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 through Edale to Hope Valley College 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.


All participants will receive a challenge event pack, containing 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!
