Envirotrek 2012 comes to the Peak District

17th Feb 2012

Envirotrek is a unique event that mixes environmental litter clean up with a range of outdoor activities. Organised by Respect the Mountains (RTM) and sponsored by Keen footwear, it has been running very successfully in various European locations for the last few years. We've had strong links with Keen for some time and when we heard that Respect the Mountains were looking to launch a UK Envirotrek event we really wanted to be involved. As a company that prioritises protecting the natural environment Peak Mountaineering you'll see this is a perfect fit for our ethos.

Over the last few months we've had various discussions and a few weeks ago a RTM representative flew over from Holland and we spent a day on a location scouting tour. We always knew why the Peak District is the ideal UK Envirotrek location and we are delighted to say that today we officially heard that Respect the Mountains and Keen can see it too!  So, we are really proud to announce that Peak Mountaineering will be organising the UK's very first Envirotrek event which will run in the Hope Valley on Sunday, August 5th 2012.

Participants are simply asked to spend a couple of hours collecting litter from various Peak District locations before they meet up for a scrummy BBQ lunch.  After a good feed they are invited to try a range of the world class outdoor activities that make the Peak District National Park such an adventure mecca. Throw in a goody bag (which includes a t-shirt and some other cool stuff) and you can see why we know this is going to be a very popular day.

We'll be keeping the website regularly updated with event news and you'll be hearing loads about this in the local and national press. Envirotrek will be a fantastic event and it's right in the centre of the UK's busiest national park. We are so happy to be involved.

If you want to register your interest just email us on info@peakmountaineering.com or give us a call on 01433620283 (online booking will be available nearer the event but we expect demand for places to be very high). We really hope you'll help us clean us our wilderness areas in 2012.
