Dress to distress and challenge yourself to a hair-raising hike around some of London’s scary streets, iconic landmarks, and historic haunts. The challenges include either a wicked 10km walk, the horrific Half Marathon Hike, or a terrifying Full Marathon Trek.
All routes start and finish in the Dungeon deep in The Oval Cricket Ground, before heading along the Thames and through the heart of the Capital. Suitable for all experience levels, you’ll get the best support and hospitality all the way.
Choose your distance, gather your bravest team, or go it alone and meet up with other chilling challengers. Places are limited – sign up soon, if you dare!
