Where and when do we meet on the day?Back to top
The start (and finish) is in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, a small village just outside of Settle in the Yorkshire Dales. We aim to meet around 6am-7am - so a nice early start!
All those taking part are expected to make their own way to the start however you may want to consider accommodation the night before or the night after. All event details will be confirmed nearer the time
What sort of person takes part?Back to top
The group will be made up of between 250- 300 men and women from all backgrounds, abilities and ages, although you must be 18 or over to take part. While some take part with friends, most people come on their own, so it’s a great way of meeting new people.
Do I have to carry a lot of kit?Back to top
You will need a day pack to hold any equipment – extra fleece and wet weather gear, camera, snacks etc - needed during the hike.
Our challenges are designed to be achievable for most people of average fitness. They are not a race and we encourage people to go at their own pace. However, this is a tough hiking challenge, so if you do not already walk on a regular basis you will need to train well during the weeks leading up to the event. A full training program will be included in your fundraising pack.
Do I need to meet any medical requirements? Back to top
Everyone on the challenge is required to complete a self-certified medical questionnaire, which will be provided in your fundraising pack.
Do I need to bring any food with me?Back to top
Your packed lunch will be provided and there will be snacks at each checkpoint. However, you may want to bring some extra snacks or energy drinks/sweets especially if you have special dietary requirements.
Can I bring someone with me who is not a fundraiser?Back to top
This trip is solely organised for the purpose of raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support so we are unable to accommodate anyone who is not a fundraising participant.
What is the terrain like? Back to top
We trek mainly on grassy and well maintained gravel paths but there are some stony tracks and small tarmac roads; some sections may be muddy and wet. There are steep inclines both up and down.
The environment we walk through needs the respect of all its users to be preserved. Please walk on the path surface rather than on the vegetation growing beside it, don’t remove stones from the paths and don’t take short-cuts. Please follow the Countryside Code.
