Brought to you by the award winning outdoor events team at peaksGO Limited.

This year over 1,500 people have taken part in the team version of Hunted in the Peaks - Hunted

The Cromford Challenge takes the concept of the team event and challenges individuals to compete against each other.

Our course covers an area of just over 13 miles, across several stages. Dependant on what you want to get out of the day, you can choose to take part in either the Cromford Challenge or the Elite Challenge.

Cromford Challenge - A treasure hunt with the Hunted element running from Cromford Mills to Middleton Top and back. Climbing over 1000ft and possibly taking in three of the area's most spectacular panoramic views.
Elite Challenge - A Treasure Hunt with the Hunted element running the full 13 miles from Cromford Mills, to Harboro Rocks and back, climbing over 1500ft and taking in four of the area’s most spectacular panoramic views.

At 10.00am on the 21st March 2020, each of our entrants will be taking part in huge Treasure Hunt. They will be heading of in search of 300 hidden tokens, the location of which will be given to you on the day, when each participant receives one of our bespoke treasure maps.

Along the way you will have to enter the Hunters Zone. Here you will need to avoid being captured by one of our Hunters, whilst still on the lookout for tokens. Avoid capture and you will gain extra, valuable points for your tally.

The entire day will work on a points system. Starting at 10.00am and ending at 14.15pm, you will have just over 4 hours to complete your chosen route, with the top points scorers winning prizes. Winners will be announced in the courtyard at Cromford Mills at 15.00pm.

You can gain points by doing the following.
