THE tradition of the Great Kinder Beer Barrel Challenge in the Peak District rolls on next weekend.
The challenge, which involves a 900ft climb over three miles of the boggy terrain of high peak moorland followed by a knee-cracking descent into Edale valley, started 13 years ago as the result of a bet between a local shepherd and the landlord of the Nags Head Inn in Edale.
Each team member receives customary liquid reward and the fastest team wins a full barrel of beer. Money is raised for local charities through sponsorship and fundraising. Peak Ales and Bradfield Brewery are offering their ales as prizes.
The race start at the Snake Inn at 12.30pm and teams are expected to finish in Edale village square at around 1.30pm, where there will be a barbecue.
An evening of entertainment in Edale village hall will include Hope Valley College Big Band.Follow @pdview
