The Challenge

The Fright Hike challenge is simple – each walker makes their way around the 30km route within 6 hours.

Epping Forest, London, Saturday 26th October 2013
Famous for ghost sightings and paranormal activities, Epping Forest is London’s largest open space and is sure to provide us with the best of backdrops for our southern Fright Hike! With its large church and surrounding cemetery and the legendary ‘Hangmans Hill’, that is said to have been used to hang criminals and convicts. In addition, the forest is reputed to be the home of Dick Turpins ghost – the infamous murderous highway man.

Don your trekking boots…this 30km hike will be murder on your muscles!

Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, Saturday 2nd November 2013
Best known for the legend of Robin Hood, this world famous forest is also said to be home of various spirits and legends and home to Rufford Abbey – said to be one of the most haunted places in England. With its medieval-era atmosphere, and crumbling haunted ruins of a monastery this location will run riots in your mind.

Tie your trekking laces tight, this will be one a monster of a trek
