No ordinary walk in the park

Not only will you be surrounded by an abundance of nature on your trek, you will also visit the site where 617 Squadron practised low-level flying in preparation for the Dam-Buster raids of WW2, pass by the Great Oak Tree planted by King George VI in 1945 and, for those on the longer route, you will skirt around Lady Bower Reservoir, beneath which lies the flooded Village of Derwent.

What are you waiting for? Sign up today and be part of the first ever Derwent Dams #TeamBonesTrek. We'll see you at the start line!

As part of #TeamBones you will receive:

  • Your very own #TeamBonesTrek finisher's medal once you cross the finish line
  • #TeamBones t-shirt to wear on your adventure
  • Hands on support throughout your #TeamBones challenge, with a dedicated contact at #TeamBones HQ

Most importantly we will provide you with an incredible reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards saving lives and improving outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer.
