Borough Insight

On your hike!

RTBHOver 60 people took part in the recent Round the Borough Hike, with the ages of participants ranging from eight to eighty!

Now in its fifth year, the event offers participants the chance to explore Epsom & Ewell's green spaces via a 20 mile network of walking routes joining up the beautiful open spaces across Epsom & Ewell; including Epsom & Walton Downs, Epsom Common, Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill, and Horton Country Park.

The route is permanently marked and maps are available to download from the Council website – so anyone can try all or part of the walk at any time.

Councillor Tony Axelrod, Vice Chairman of the Community and Wellbeing Committee, said: "Round the Borough Hike is probably the best way to experience Epsom & Ewell's plentiful and stunning open spaces with friends and family. You can complete the hike at your own pace or set yourself a challenge to achieve a milestone.

The Hike (taking place in September) and the sister Bike event in May are part of the legacy of the Council’s 75 anniversary and the London Olympics both of which occurred in 2012. Registration for Round the Borough Bike which takes place on Sunday 14 May 2017 is now open!
