Join us for a fantastic linear walk, this trail follows the top of the Malvern Ridge from Chase End at the south to North Hill taking in all the main summits. The route provides some of the best views in the country, which on a clear day extend right into Wales. We have two options available for this challenge.
Well behaved dogs are welcome on this event but must be kept on a lead at all times.
Option 1 – End to End – Cover the entire Malvern Hills from South to North before boarding the minibus which will take you back to the start.
Distance: 9 Miles
Option 2 – The double – Cover the entire Malvern Hills from South to North before turning around and doing it all over again!
Distance 18 Miles

If you’re fundraising you’ll confirm which charity you’re supporting via a drop down menu. Be careful to pick the correct one. Once your booking is completed your chosen charity will be notified of your participation and will be in touch with you to support you in your fundraising efforts.
CHARITY FUNDRAISING DEADLINES:
All sponsorship goes direct to the Charity via their recommended giving pages. At least 50% of the sponsorship target should be with the Charity by 3 weeks prior to the Challenge. At this time the Charity confirms you are on track to meet the agreed minimum fundraising target. Failure to raise this amount may result in cancellation by your charity. The remaining 50%, and any extra, should be with your Charity by 4 weeks after the Challenge.
The walk will take place in most weathers but the leader will reserve final judgement on the day (in most cases) and maintains the right to abandon any walk if they feel the safety of themselves or any participant is at risk.
Under 18s taking part cannot sign themselves up – they must be signed up by someone over 18.
Once they’ve registered with us, it will take about 5-7 working days to add them onto our registration forms, and you can then sign up to your chosen challenge in aid of them.
Alternatively you can Self Fund your place and fundraise for them independently with no fundraising commitment.
Please note: the above is relevant for Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Funding places only. If you are entering as a Self Funder you can fundraise for any charity of your choice (only if you want to) & we do not need to be informed.
If you join as a Self Funder however, you have complete flexibility on who you fundraise for – with no targets or deadlines, and no cost to those charities.
