We're sorry but we don't have any guaranteed charity places in this event.
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.
