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. 

By day, the Forest of Dean is a welcoming place with an enchanting and unique character of its own, but as evening draws into night, there are tales of strange happenings and uncanny places. Beware of ‘The Jailer’ of Littledean Jail, which stands at the Gateway to the Forest; children as young as 8 years old were incarcerated here, whose cries have been heard late at night. Don your trekking boots… this 30km hike will be murder on your muscles!

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
