Join us Saturday, 24 September, for our 5th Annual UK Trek!

(in person option)

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. Your walk through beautiful countryside enables us to support our alumnae around the world and our work to set up programming in a new country. 

 

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!

 

  • 50 km and 25 km options done at your own pace

  • Water & healthy snacks provided on the route

Set up your fundraising page (see below on how to do that), ask friend and family to support Ascend, and walk 25k or 50k. The beauty of the virtual event is that you can choose a different weekend to walk if September 24 doesn't work; or you can break your trek into smaller hikes over a week or a few weekends.
