Event Organiser - Dark and White

Sadly the Wildest Peaks on 16th January 2021 is unable to go ahead. 

As a result of the pandemic, securing the correct license and landowner permissions for the route has simply not been possible. We have looked into alternative route options and would like to thank the National Trust and the Eastern Moors Partnership for their co-operation in trying to help the event go ahead. However during these challenging times we have come to realise that our annual winter event is not feasible this time. 

Dark & White Events



As a result of the uncertainty of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to implement a "Si Entries Pre-Selection" list which allows you to register your interest for the event. No payment will be required at this stage. Once we are certain the event can go ahead we will invite all those on the list (via email) to complete the entry process and we will take payment at that time.


The fifth edition of this superb winter trail running event across the high level moorland and woodland of the Eastern Moors and National Trust Longshaw Estate. Both the 25.7 km long and 10.6 km short routes provide a variety of top quality running trails and the opportunity to gaze over some of Peak District National Park’s most stunning scenery.

The 2021 Wildest Peaks will be a reduced capacity socially distanced trail run held under the current rules and regulations set out by England Athletics and the Trail Running Association.
