As you may know, Humanity Direct are a charity close to our hearts and we hold several ultra-running events every year, with every penny we raise going towards funding operations for children.
We now also have several multi-day, long-distance walking events organised, to raise money for other charities. You don't need to be an ultra-runner to take part in these events - they are achievable by anyone in good health who puts the preparation in. A training plan will be provided, plus you will receive lots of encouragement and be assisted by guides and experts throughout the hike.
Please take a look at the events below - get involved and ask your friends and family to join you!

Florence Nightingale Hospice Trust Ridgeway Hike
In June 2021 forty hospice supporters took on our first Ridgeway Hike challenge – many walking with friends and family in memory of loved ones – and raised over £40,000 for local hospice care.
This four-day, 80 mile hike returns for 2022 along a route used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers and the oldest road in Britain, taking hikers from Swindon back to Aylesbury.
A two-day, 40 mile option starting in Princes Risborough on Saturday 11th June is also available for those unable to commit to a longer hike.
Date 10th Sep 2022
