Peak Challenge Trek

The walk will take the Lonsdale Wealth Management team from base camp in Bakewell through the beautiful scenery in the Peak District National Park on a 100km loop back to Bakewell.  The team will be supported on the day by the Alzheimer’s Society, with food and rest stops during the trek.

Raising money for Alzheimer’s Society

Lonsdale Services has regularly fundraised for the Alzheimer’s Society, raising over £9,000 for the charity over the last five years.  Conor McClean recently completed the 2023 London Marathon and raised £3,000 for the charity.  In recent years Lonsdale teams also completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks and Cotswold Way challenges, and Steve Cook fundraised for Alzheimer’s in the Devizes to Westminster canoe challenge. 

About the Peak District Challenge

According to Dementia Friends the Peak District 100km is ‘a wonderful but tough and varied route – a figure of eight – through Derbyshire’s finest scenery, and serves up the best of the Peak District, with the trail leading you through the Peak District National Park to the comforting Bakewell basecamp. You’ll get full support all the way, and with half and quarter distance options also available, which pass Chatsworth House, there’s a Peak District Challenge for everyone!’

Simon Hawker Managing Director at Lonsdale Services said: 

‘We have always supported the Alzheimer’s Society and fundraised for the charity since we became a corporate partner six years ago. Some of our clients are affected by Dementia and some Lonsdale colleagues have experienced Dementia first-hand within their own family. We chose to take on the hardest Peak District challenge, walking the 100km, equivalent to 62 miles in 24 hours.  It's going to be tough. Some of us completed the 24 mileTrek24 Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in 2018, but we are really hoping this time there will be less hills to climb!  The Alzheimer’s Society has supplied us with training plans, so we can practice building up the distance we walk before the big day.  Conor McClean just completed the London Marathon so I am sure he will be leading the way on this challenge!
