This May is National Walking Month, a whole month dedicated to encouraging people across the country to get on their feet. From a stroll along the South Coast, to trekking your way up the UK’s three highest peaks, we have a walk to suit just about everyone. Here are our top six.
Cotswolds Way Challenge (30 June – 1 July)
Join over 2,000 trekkers and take on the historic route that goes from Bath to Cheltenham. Take your pick from one of three distances, 100k, 50k or 25k!
Jurassic Coast Challenge (21-22 July)
Starting in Poole Harbour, walk, jog or run the spectacular Jurassic coastline. This is a fun and rewarding challenge with full support and hospitality included, leaving you to focus on getting to the finish line.
South Coast Challenge (25-26 August)
Take in some of England’s finest scenery as you make your way up Beachy Head, over the magnificent Seven Sisters and along the South Downs Way as historic Arundel comes into view.
