Join us in September 2021, for our 4th Annual UK Trek!

This ‘end of season’ 50 or 25 km event covers some of the most picturesque countryside in the UK. You can Walk, Jog, or Run along historic trails and over rolling hills. Join fellow Ascend supporters and volunteers for a weekend of fun including a celebration at the finish. Camping or local accommodations can be arranged. 


Walk alone or with friends, and commit to fundraising for Ascend's programs in Afghanistan. Your walk through beautiful countryside enables Afghan girls to get out and walk in their own rugged backcountry! 


Passing through nature reserves, forests, and a few hills with great views - it's a route with real variety, and some wonderful scenery - and it's all easily accessible from London.

We'll take care of the details so you can focus on your training and your fundraising challenge!
