Malvern Hills END to END & BACK
THIS YEAR, OUR ONLY CHALLENGE WALK
A STRENUOUS, HILLY 18 miles at a fairly quick pace … this walk is for experienced, fit walkers.
Maximum Number of Walkers: 15
Sadly, since we don't know what Covid restrictions may still be in force next May, this is the only challenge walk we believe we can offer for the 2021 Festival.
So, the walk starts in Gt Malvern by the Elgar Statue on Belle Vue Island, opposite the Post Office.
We'll walk the whole range of the Malvern Hills and back again, taking in most of the tops.
Very scenic with many points of interest en route - it is a huge achievement and great accomplishment to complete this End to End & Back, and you will enjoy great camaraderie all day.
Taking 8 hours, with continual steep ascents and descents, this walk is only suitable for very fit and experienced hill walkers.
There may be an opportunity to buy snacks en route but we advise you to be self-sufficient: bring lots of food and drink.
There are public toilets en route.
Check the weather on days leading up to the walk: if hot, you must bring hats, sun cream, lip balm; if wet you must bring waterproofs.
We finish 5.00-5.30 pm and ... slip into a pub to celebrate!
