We answer your questions

When does the trip take place?

The challenge takes place on the 14 June 2014.

What do I need to do to take part?

Simply sign up from this page. You'll need to pay a £25 registration fee when you register, and we then ask you to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £175. 

What's included?

  • Full support from Team Macmillan, including comprehensive fundraising and training guides, sponsor forms and regular newsletters. 
  • Packed lunch and hot drinks at the mid-way point. 
  • Regular check-points with water and snacks. 
  • Full support with experienced mountain leaders from Discover Adventure. 
  • Macmillan Cancer Support representative. 
  • Special souvenir to commemorate your achievements.

What's not included?

  • Insurance. This is optional and our tour operator, Discover Adventure, offers insurance specifically created to cover you for the activity you will be undertaking. 
  • Travel to and from the event.

Where do we meet on the day?

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?

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 need to carry a lot of kit?

You will need a day pack to hold any equipment that you might need during the hike – perhaps an extra fleece and wet weather gear, camera, snacks, etc.

Am I fit enough?

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?

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 food?

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 other people who are not fundraising for Macmillan?

This trip is organised for people who are raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. But if a friend or family member fancies the challenge too, why not sign up together? We've got lots of fundraising ideas that could help you.

What's the terrain like?

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.
