Peak Divide is resolutely not a race.
We’ve been harping on about it from the start. Regardless of the r-word, it’s still a long way from Manchester to Sheffield, so you’re going to need half decent legs and to give a bit of thought about what you're bringing with you.
We – Luke, Stef and Tom – have made the journey from the Second City* to the Steel City on foot twice now. We’ve experienced everything from incredible bluebird days to bitter, boggy ones so between us have come up with a list of mandatory, nice-to-haves and outright luxuries.
We won’t be ferreting through your running pack at the start line to check you have a compass and whistle, but it can get pretty wild on the top of the Peak when it wants to, so please do make sure the mandatory items are in there.
