Please don't hesitate to get in touch at any point if you have any questions in regards to what shops, brands or prices to look out for when preparing your adventure. For those who travel from further afield, please note that you can get professional advise and purchase high quality products in one of our long established local outdoor retailers before the courses start. We often meet at 'Outside Hathersage', one of the most respected retail shops in the Peak, which also has a cosy cafe upstairs!
