Round the Borough Hike - it's back!

If you haven't registered already, register today for the popular Round the Borough Hike, Saturday 8 September.walk

Now in its seventh year, this predominantly off road 20 miles walk offers the chance to explore the diverse open spaces within Epsom and Ewell.

Are you up for the challenge? Setting off from Horton Country Park at 8.30am; the challenge is to complete the full 20 mile route in one day! The family friendly route takes between six to nine hours depending on length and frequency of breaks (and visits to local hostelries)! You can complete the hike at your own pace or set yourself a challenge to achieve a milestone.

Certificates will be awarded to those completing the full 20 miles. Those who completed the Round the Borough Bike earlier in the year and go on to complete the Hike will also get a special keepsake.

Some of last year’s participants who took part in the Hike even raised money for charity. This year's participants are once again invited to raise money for a charity of their choice.

Participants must wear suitable footwear as the route covers a variety of terrain and is uneven in places; and be prepared for the weather. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Please note, bikes, roller blades/skates are not permitted for the Hike and dogs must be kept on a lead and under control.

The route is available to download and view on a smartphone - this is not essential as for the day, the route is fully marshalled, signposted and physical maps are available.

While the there is no charge to take part, we do ask that you register in advance, so that we know how many are coming and can be suitably prepared.
