The Skyline is a classic walk and race for fell runners. Our route starts from the village of Hope and includes Win Hill, Kinder Scout, Brown Knoll, Rushup Edge, Mam Tor, Back Tor and Lose Hill, before descending to Hope to celebrate our achievement! It will take approximately 9 – 10 hours for us to walk the route. Participants must be fit and able to complete a full day out on the hills and be comfortable walking all day with just small breaks.

Respect, Protect and Enjoy!
We all want to respect, protect and enjoy the fragile upland environments where we walk, so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come. Following The Countryside Code really helps…
- Be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
- Leave gates and property as you find them
- Do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
- Be nice, say hello, share the space
- Follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available
- Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
- Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
- Always keep dogs under control and in sight
- Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
- Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
- Check your route and local conditions
- Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
- Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory
