September Stomp - On the Day

On the Day

The start: Edale public car park (next to Village Hall) S33 7ZA – please note, using the postcode on its own may take you to the Peak Outdoor Centre. The car park is back down the road towards the train station.

Registration from: 08:00 to 08:30

Walk starts: 8:30am and likely to finish between 4.00pm-6.30pm depending on pace!

Parking

The Edale public car park should have spaces but you will need to bring between £5 – £7 in cash for the parking meter as this is a cash only car park.

By car

Edale is roughly 1.5 hours from Derby (approx 46 miles) via the A515.

By Rail

Edale train station is situated across the road from the meeting point at Edale public car park. Regular direct trains run to and from Sheffield and Manchester and take rougly 30-45 minutes. If you are getting the train from Derby, you will need to go via Sheffield which takes around 1 hour 20 minutes. Please note, as the walk is on a Sunday, most train services will not be able to get you to the meeting point on time for the start of the walk.

Support vehicles

Although there will be a support vehicle meeting us at two points on the day with snacks and refreshments, it may be worth having a friend or family member at the end of the phone who is available to come and pick you up if you have any difficulties.

The Route

The September Stomp starts at Edale and takes us across Kinder, Rushup Edge, Mam Tor, the Hope Valley and Win Hill. The route is relatively hilly and challenging but will be guided and supported by experienced local mountain leaders.

We aim for the whole group to stay together throughout the walk but depending on numbers, strongly recommend getting a friend, relative or colleague involved too so you can help spur each other on.

Important stuff

We suggest light weight waterproof walking shoes for this type of terrain, but it’s a good idea to ensure you’ve used them a bit first to make sure you can comfortably walk long distances in them.

It would be a good idea to bring a blister kit (including plasters and antiseptic cream)

There will be some access toilets along the route.

There will be two checkpoints where we will stop for refreshments including hot drinks, soup, bacon or veggie option cobs, crisps, chocolate, fruit and water. We also suggest that all stompers start off with at least a few snacks and full water bottle (minimum 1 litre) to sustain them until the first support point.

All further details will be sent in your welcome fundraising pack including meeting point, itinerary, route, suggested kit list and health and safety information.

If there is anything specific you would like to ask before signing up, please call 01332 362120.

Dogs

With great regret, due to the length of the walk and duty of care to the rest of the Stompers, dogs are not permitted on our walk.
