Your challenge day by day

Day 1, Sat 26 Jun 2021

Day 1

Arrive at the start in historic Marlborough where you’ll get yourself registered and ready to go and meet your fellow Ridgewalk hikers!

Before you set off there will be a full safety briefing from the challenge leaders to ensure all the participants are fully prepared. After that, you’ll be cheered across the start line as you set off on your challenge.

The route uses the Ridgeway National Trail for a large part of the hike and there are many highlights along the way including the monument of the Avebury Stone Circle, Barbury Castle, Liddington Castle and the Alton Barnes White Horse chalk hill figure.

You will walk the first section during the day and as you pass through small villages and a variety of countryside you will be cheered on by many supporters!

The route itself undulates gently across the 52 miles. We’ll make sure you’re supported throughout the event; from snacks and drinks at checkpoints to give you energy boosts, to cheer points along the way to give you morale boosts.

You’ll also get a delicious hot meal around the half-way point before continuing your trek through the night.


Day 2, Sun 27 Jun 2021

Day 2

After starting your night section you will walk at through the dark for approximately 20 miles depending on your speed. With further hot food and drinks points the team are there to support you and lift your spirits during the most challenging section.

After trekking through the night and enjoying the sunrise across the rolling hills of Wiltshire you’ll receive a RidgeWalk heroes welcome as you cross the finish line back in Marlborough. Here you’ll be able to put your feet up, get your free massage and refuel with a well-deserved hot breakfast and cuppa.
