Sponsorship Target

Are you looking to try something a little different for your fundraising event – how about The Fright Hike challenge? The Fright Hike (www.fright-hike.com) challenge is simple – each walker makes their way around the 30km route within 6 hours.

The perfect location with ghostly sites like ‘Hangman's Hill’, where three witches were reputedly hanged, and the hunting ground of the legendary highwayman, Dick Turpin; numerous sightings of a ghost wearing a tricorn hat, riding a horse have been reported in the forest. Trek here if you dare!

Being a Fright Hiker...

Ghosts and spooks aside, be aware that Fright Hike is a tough walking challenge as well as being a fun social event. The 30km courses are not easy and we require all walkers to be able to complete the route within 6 hours.

Trekking for 30km will be very difficult if you don’t take part in regular walking activities, but with the correct training and with our expert support, it is very achievable.

  • Sign up as a team – support each other on your Halloween hike!
  • Sign up as an individual – our Fright Hike crew will support you
  • Just £35 to register per person or less if you’re an ‘early bird’ (see below for registration fees)
  • Raise a minimum sponsorship of £140 for Sands.

The Fright Hike Village

All the Fright Hike routes will start and finish at a Fright Hike Village where a whole host of facilities will be available for everyone taking part in all four event locations – toilets, hot food and refreshments available to buy, car parking and a great atmosphere pre and post hike!
