Your skills may not be listed here, but please get in touch with the registrar if you think you have skills that would be helpful and would like to come.

All staff on Peak Assault must be over 18 with a valid Scouting DBS and up to date Mandatory Ongoing Learning.

Hillwallking Experience Seekers....if you are looking to learn more skills in the hills, you can join our hill marshals as an "assistant" You will need to be able to look after yourself in the hills, be fit and able for a potential 12 hour day out in the hills. This may be a day of intense activity from the start, quiet throughout, or a mix. Please book yourself on as a hill marshal and place a note in "Other" as "seeking hillwalking experience".

How to Book your place? Please read carefully

Please register by following the link below, from there you will have the option to book and pay. Health forms will be requested at a later date.

All staff pay a flat rate (includes all fees and catering including lunches) + Transport.


The expectation is that Staff use HPA Transport (Coach, Minibus etc.) to get to/from the event. However, if this is not practical and the only option you have is to travel directly to Peak Assault in your own vehicle then please email explaining why you need to self-transport before booking your place. Car parking may be extremely limited at the site but our main concern is a duty of care for solo drivers, particularly on the Sunday return trip after a strenuous weekend. No expenses/fuel will be paid for self-travel, however you will not pay the transport fee.
