The Surrey 5 Peaks Hikeathon 

When: TBC

Where: Two longer routes of 26 miles (circular) or 13 miles (linear) plus a six-mile circular walk.

Target sponsorship per person: £150 plus £55 registration. Please raise as much as you can to support our vital work.

Surrey 5 Peaks is the biggest fundraising event supporting Surrey Care Trust’s work of creating opportunities for people to improve their skills for life, learning and work.

Unlike similar charity walks in the Surrey Hills which are organised by private event companies, all the money raised will be used to support charity work here in Surrey thanks to the generosity of our sponsor Broanmain Plastics and our volunteers.

If you are up for it, you will be so proud of how your two fabulous feet have helped people across Surrey to have brighter futures.
