Take on a trek for the British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is inviting people to take on a walk or trek in one of their chosen scenic locations to beat heart disease step by step.

Their vision is a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from heart disease. These events are a great experience for those looking for the ultimate challenge, who are ready to put in plenty of training and enjoy what is going to be a serious test of both your mental and physical stamina. A few of the hikes/treks that have been organised for 2018 include:

Glasgow to Edinburgh – Pass Kelvingrove Museum and Park, locks on the Forth and Clyde canal, the Falkirk Wheel, Linlithgow Palace before arriving in Scotland’s capital. Or choose the shorter but still strenuous day walk from Glasgow to the famous Falkirk Wheel.

Yorkshire Three Peaks – Tackle rocky terrain and steep climbs, whilst enjoying the sights of the Yorkshire dales. The first peak, Pen-y-Ghent provides great views of the peaks to come.  Walk towards Whernside and take in the grandeur of Ribblehead Viaduct and then onto Ingleborough for the final ascent.

Hadrian’s Wall – A brand new extended 15 mile route to celebrate our 15th birthday of the event in 2018. The new 15 mile route will start at and follow Hadrian’s Wall to Walltown Quarry where you will then pick up the 9 mile route and finish at Housesteads Visitor Centre.

London to Oxford –  From the Capital to the historic university city of Oxford, one of our most difficult and prestigious endurance challenges.

London to Henley – Start in Spelthorne and follow beautiful paths along the River Thames before arriving in the home of the world famous regatta, Henley-on-Thames.

London to Brighton – Our most famous trek, take in beautiful scenery before arriving at Brighton beach or take on the shorter but still testing day walk from London to Cranleigh.
