Hundreds step out in the Peak

For some it was a Sunday stroll, for others it was a near-marathon endeavour. Almost 1,000 walkers stepped out on Sunday against the backdrop of the region’s most spectacular scenery for the Jane Tomlinson Peak District Walk.

Many of them were raising money for causes close to their hearts, while others were also confronting personal challenges - whether it was living with a debilitating health condition, or walking in memory of a lost loved one.

Walkers of all ages took part – the youngest were four and the eldest were 78 – with three routes ranging from a modest 5 to a challenging 25 miles. The walks set off from Hope and were organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Walk For All – part of the legacy of the late fundraiser who made headlines with a series of epic feats, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
