The Spring Gathering

The Spring Gathering

is organised by  Challenge route-vetter, Alan Hardy and usually held in March or April.  For many years it has been held at the Snake Pass Inn but this is about to undergo a major refurbishment so for 2020 the plan was to hold it in Hayfield but the coronavirus epidemic got in the way.

It is uncertain as to whether a 2021 Spring reunion will be possible but if it is it is a good opportunity for new Challengers to meet up with some old hands and experience the sociable side of the Challenge before the start of the event. Alan arranges a walk in the Derbyshire Hills as well as a three-course dinner.

Whenever we are next able to hold a Spring Gathering we will post details here.
