Trek The Night - Cotswold Way - 9 June 2018

It’s midnight. Most people are asleep. But not you.

You’ve got a map, a torch, some hiking shoes and you’re ready to do battle. Ready to face the ultimate challenge. The challenge that will try to break you.

Trek the Night is a gruelling 40 mile midnight hike that will push you to your limits. Think you can walk? Think again. This endurance challenge is tough, muddy, painful and a hell of a lot of fun.

Perfect for team bonding or for taking on your very own personal challenge. Walk it solo or with your friends, colleagues or family.

You’ll need stamina and determination to get you through but once you’ve hit the finish line the sense of accomplishment is unbeatable.
