FROM NORTHERN LANDSCAPES along the Ullswater Way from Dalemain to Lowther Castle to the magnificent Jurassic Coast from Weymouth to Wareham, past the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, Mighty Hikes take you to some of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of the UK. There are eight different events taking place in 2019 in various locations from the South Coast to Rob Roy in Scotland. Each event takes place over a day, covering around 26 miles, and offering you the opportunity to enjoy a guided route along coastlines and off the beaten track which you might not have had the confidence to otherwise attempt independently.
To take part and help Macmillan continue to support people living with cancer, and their families, you're asked to pledge to raise a minimum of £250. There is just a £25 registration fee to pay for taking part in a Mighty Hike, and you will receive a branded t-shirt, drinks and snacks along the way, a buffet lunch and a hot dinner at the end of the event. All walks include professional organisation and the provision of medical assistance.
On the day, you set off in a group of similar walking ability. Waves of around 250 hikers start walking 20 minutes apart from around 7-8.30am. You are given the opportunity to choose your preferred start time as part of the registration process.
With all the organisation being taken care of, you can simply put one foot in front of the other, enjoy the beautiful views of some of the best walking routes in the country, while taking in the electric atmosphere and meeting people along the way.
Both amateur and professional photography enthusiasts love Mighty Hikes as they cover many iconic British landmarks at a leisurely pace - there's plenty of time to compose the perfect shot and create even more lasting memories from your trip.
“Thank you so much again for everything you do - you truly are an amazing organisation.“
“Do it for yourself, do it for Macmillan,
do it for someone you love, but don’t not do it”
“It was a tremendous event and the memories will stay with us
