Hike through Epping Forest for charity
An organisation which has spent the past 13 years helping charities across the UK raise substantial funds is embarking on its latest challenge - a Halloween hike through Epping Forest.
Global Adventure Challenges, founded in 2000, has organised 90 challenges this year alone, with proceeds going to charities of the participants' choice.
Fright Hike is a 30k overnight challenge which will take place on Saturday October 26 in Epping Forest.
The hike will cover areas such as Hangman's Hill, known for its paranormal activity, and will also pass the trail reputed to be the home of the ghost of ghost of notorious highwayman Dick Turpin.
The event has 250 spaces and expects to raise a minimum of £40,000.
Events Officer and Challenge Leader Stef Hall said: “The best bit about the hike is you choose your charity, whether it’s for the homeless or a dog shelter - it’s your decision.”
The aim is to finish the hike in six hours and teams will be accompanied by professional mountain leaders.
The event costs £39 per person and individuals or groups are welcome.
