Welcome to Freshwalks and our latest Sunrise event. We invite you to join us for some uphill, early morning walking before hopefully witnessing a glorious morning sunrise.
We intend to start the walk from Edale train station at 06:25. You can either drive and meet us there or catch a train from Manchester Piccadilly at 05:46, passing Stockport at 05:56 and Hazel Grove at 06:04.
The plan is to leave the village immediately and quickly pick up the paths that climbs towards Mam Tor - aiming to arrive at the top (517m) by sunrise at 07:32. It will require a fairly steady pace to do so. After a short break, we'll then walk along the ridge towards Lose Hill, facing the sunrise. We should arrive in Hope before 10:00 where we will head to the Tea Rooms at the Old Hall Hotel for a traditional Derbyshire breakfast. You can then either catch the train back to Manchester or hop on for one stop back to your car.
Please note that this event will be postponed in the event of serious / adverse weather conditions. Either a refund or transfer to alternative event will be offered. Ideally, you'd bring your own head torch though as long as we have enough within the group, it should be fine. We'll sort this detail in the week before.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email email with any questions you may have. Alternatively, please contact us through Twitter @freshwalks

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, you're fine as you are. We keep track of the attendees and check you off on arrival. However, if you have a confirmation email saved onto your phone, this may be useful on the rare occasion that there are any issues.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
If you can no longer make it, please be sure to contact us. We try to be as accommodating as possible and understand that work commitments may pop up. Therefore, if you do need to transfer your ticket to a colleague, please contact us with their details to transfer this asap.
