About ARUK Explorer Hike
The ARUK Explorer Hike takes place in the beautiful Peak District, exclusively for Alzheimer’s Research UK supporters. Take on the walk alone, with friends, or meet people on the day who share a connection to dementia.
Choose from two routes through the Peaks: a challenging 26-mile hike or a shorter 8-mile walk. Whichever route you pick, you’ll be surrounded by stunning natural views while you raise awareness and vital funds.
Your hike will begin at Bakewell, with a coach to take you to the starting point. Both routes will finish at Carsington Water, where you’ll be rewarded with your medal, snacks, and refreshments. Along the route there will be fully-stocked pitstops where you can stop to chat to volunteers and other walkers, or just take a well-earned break!
When you sign up for the Explorer Hike, your £26 registration fee and the money you fundraise helps to contribute to essential dementia research.
The minimum fundraising target for the 26-mile route is £250, and the 8-mile route is £100.
By hiking with us, you can play a part in funding life-changing dementia research.
