Join this fantastic weekend trekking challenge through the night to discover Stonehenge at sunrise! Our charity challenge will see us trek through the Wiltshire countryside with the moonlight as our guide to uncover the mysteries of Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A tough and sleepless 22 mile trek!
Together for Short Lives - Hayes employees only
Day 1 – We meet at our accommodation for event registration, briefing and dinner. Following dinner we will set off walking at approximately 9.30pm direct from our accommodation. The route crosses into land by the MOD, walking through beautiful areas little-used by the general public. We continue in similar terrain until we reach our first water stop near Figheldean.
Day 2 – Trekking through the night, we continue toward the village of Larkhill and on to Stonehenge. The terrain remains similar to what has already been experienced as we continue through areas of ground used by the military. Sunrise will be at around 04:30/05:00 by which point we should have reached Stonehenge, walking at steady average speed of around 3km per hour. Once close to Stonehenge we celebrate our achievements, grab some more refreshments from the water stop and hopefully witness a spectacular sunrise before beginning the return leg.
We head across Amesbury Down and through the town of Amesbury before the final push across Boscombe Down West to our hostel.
Once we arrive at the hostel we will enjoy a hot breakfast before getting some well-deserved sleep. Today is a free day to rest. We hold a celebratory evening meal this evening. Distance trekked – approx. 22 miles
Day 3 – Following breakfast at the hostel, we are free to go on our onward journeys.
