The event

The Pennine Way is a 270 mile trail starting in Edale in the Peak District and ending up just inside Scotland at Kirk Yetholm. The route passes the Pennines and the Cheviots – the central mountains of the UK.

Walkers normally conquer the trail within three weeks and there are smaller routes within the Way for those that have less time on their hands. The Pennine Way is an opportunity to see some of the most beautiful, rugged and challenging landscapes in the UK, while taking time out to explore historic market towns along the route.

Trek for Link Ethiopia and every penny you raise will help us to continue our work in changing lives through education. With the money you raise you will help to empower teachers, improve schools and ensure that all children can get a good education.

We will support you with any help or resources you might need in order to get you on the right foot with your fundraising efforts. Please fill out the contact form on this page if you have any questions.


How much does it cost to take part?

The Pennine Way is a National Trail where you have the right to roam and so there is no entry cost!
Costs for undertaking the trail will depend very much on how much hiking equipment you already own, and your choice of accommodation during the trek.

What support will I receive?

Aside from the immense satisfaction borne of walking 270 miles and conquering challenging terrains, you will also receive personalised help and advice with your fundraising prior to the event. You will also get a spot in our hall of fame!

When and where does the event take place?

The trail begins in Edale, Derbyshire and ends in Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders.

What is the course like?

The trail follows the Pennines and so can be challenging and remote. It’s also very beautiful.
You can find out more by visiting the National Trail site by clicking here, by visiting the Alpine Exploratory site here, or by exploring it on Google maps.

How much should I fundraise?

Individual entry is bought or organised by the participant so there is no fundraising minimum for this challenge. Raise as much as you can and all proceeds will go towards our projects and schools in Ethiopia.
Run for Link Ethiopia in any manner and we will be there to help you with fundraising ideas and advice.
