Our London to Brighton Trek is a total experience. Come rain or shine you just keep walking. All through the night you'll encounter dark woods, shadowy roads and spooky lanes. All you’ll have to keep you going is your trusty head torch, the support of your team and the thought of your final goal, Brighton!

The trek is the ultimate team event. Ideally, trekkers should take part in a team, partly because of the testing nature of the event and the overnight sections of walking. But the real reason to take part with friends and family is because of the huge sense of achievement you will feel when you cross the finish line together after walking through the day and night. If you don’t want to walk the entire route yourself you could always split the trek into sections and do a team relay!

No team, no problem!
Of course, if you are not part of a team you are still very welcome to join us. We'll support you all the way, and you can always join up with other walkers for the really tough bits.

We’ve specialised in the London to Brighton route for years with our famous bike ride. So you can be sure you’ll be in safe hands with this amazing event from start to finish.
