May Day Trek Registration Open

What is the Sheffield May Day Trek…

It is an annual sponsored walk to raise funds for either Christian Aid or the CAFOD, according to the choice you make when you register.

Since it began in 1966 it has raised many thousands of pounds to help some of the poorest communities in the world. The Sheffield May Day Trek, and the associated Sheffield Night Hike, together raise about £15,000 each year for Christian Aid and CAFOD. The money raised is used by both charites to support long term development projects.

In this time of global recession, the need for these funds is as great as ever and any money we raise will be highly valued.

Where is the Sheffield May Day Trek…

The walks start and finish at .

St. Luke’s Church, Lodge Moor, Sheffield, S10 4LQ.
Check-in from 9:30am, to start at 10:00am (for directions see St Luke’s Church)

There are 3 circular walks of 6, 11 and 16 miles into and through the Hallam moors to the west of Sheffield.

The 6-mile walk is family friendy for those with young children, though it is not suitable for buggies. This walk goes out and back along Redmires Conduit, and around Redmires reservoirs via Redmires Road along the north side and the Yorkshire Water concessionary path along the south side.

The 11-mile walk is suitable for those who want something longer, though probably unsuitable for very young children and the 16-mile walk is more challenging. The walk goes via the Mayfield Valley, Fox House, Longshaw, Grindleford to Hathersage. From there it climbs up to Stanage Edge, passes Redmires Reservoir and back to St. Luke’s Lodge Moor.
