Cotswold Way Challenge

Date: 26th/27th June 2021

The magical Cotswold Way provides a stunning setting for a testing challenge with some fantastic views enroute and tough hills in between.

It’s a Saturday morning start from historic Cirencester, looped route of footpaths & trails. Whether you’re a keen walker and new to endurance events, or a seasoned hiker up for a new adventure, with half and quarter distance options, there’s a challenge here for everyone.

You’ll get full support & hospitality all the way to your finish line-where an amazing sense of achievement & celebration awaits!

No matter which distance you choose, you will receive full support from the Action Challenge team – hospitality and plenty of rest stops throughout your trek, as well as a celebratory finishers’ meal and massage. So all you need to do is focus on reaching that finish line and raising funds to help families facing dementia.

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
