Run for the Birds 2021

17th April 2021 - 25th June 2021

Run for the Birds is a fun personal challenge event for runners and walkers to keep you active this spring and celebrate the Peak District National Park’s 70th Birthday.

It can be completed anywhere and will have a positive impact on the UK’s original national park. The more distance you cover the more rare and endangered species of birds will survive, breed and thrive in the park. This is by the event supporting a project to improve habitats and feeding opportunities for birds in a much-visited area of the Peak District.

Included with the event is the Peak District 70th Birthday Challenge Series.

How it works:

There are 4 distance levels to choose from.

Each level gives you a distance target for you to aim for during the 70 days of the event. 

And you can take part in the Peak District 70th Birthday Challenge Series too. This has 7 virtual events that you have the option of doing as you accumulate your distance. 

You can cover as few or as many miles/kilometres as you like each day. And if you take part in any of the events in the challenge series, you can include that distance towards your overall total too. 

You can enter as many of the virtual events in the series as you like, as many times as you like, until you reach your challenge target. 

If you achieve your target amount over the 70 days you'll receive a specially made memento crafted locally from sustainable wood. Plus, you can compete for other prizes in various categories, including - but not limited to - the best performances in the virtual events.  

A significant proportion of your entry fee will go to the Peak District National Park Foundation charity, and will be used on work to diversify and restructure woodland within the park to improve habitats and feeding opportunities for birds. 

As well as helping rare and endangered bird species survive, breed and thrive, this important work is part of a strategy to ensure our original national park is protected and enjoyed by visitors for many generations to come. 

In addition to their finisher awards, all participants will receive a 20% discount voucher from The Derby Runner.
