● Photography and videography

In return you’ll get:
● A competitors goody bag and Tee

● We offer a modest “payback” in the form of a refund of your entrant’s entry fee, or a donation to a
charity of your choice, after you have completed your volunteering shift.
● And it’s lots of fun!
Operating a checkpoint is one of the more popular
roles. All checkpoints are accessible by vehicle, so access
to a car (or friend with car!) is a big advantage. The role
involves bringing supplies (like water, flapjacks and
sandwiches) out into the Peak District, and handing
them out to trekkers as they go through.
Checkpoints are organised in shifts of 8-10 hours, so
camping chairs and outdoor clothing are a good idea.
Many checkpointers come back year-on-year and make
their checkpoint their own, with home-baked treats to
hand out, comfortable chairs and a friendly welcome for
returning participants.

We will provide food and drink for the entrants, and whilst many volunteers bring along extra home-made
things for the trekkers to enjoy, that isn’t essential.
Catering Roles involve helping cook a delicious stew
supper for participants when they arrive back in HQ
after their trek. Experienced caterers would be ideal
for this role.
Specialist skills are also welcomed, from first aid and
videography, to social media publicity and
spreadsheet/ admin help.
A car is not essential, but helpful. A campervan would
be the ideal checkpoint-operating vehicle!
Registration at HQ involves registering
participants, helping with domestics, then
handing out medals and goody bags to
triumphant finishers
