FAQs

FAQs

How fit do I need to be?

The route is designed to be challenging for those of good health and fitness, and is achievable for most people provided they train well in advance. We will supply you with a thorough training guide when you have registered. Training for the challenge is all part of the preparation and requires commitment! Without it, you will find the trek less enjoyable - and we want you to have the time of your life!

What will the trekking be like?

We trek mainly on paved roads. The majority of the route is flat or gently undulating. 

Is there a minimum age limit?

The minimum age limit for the Trek26 series is 14. All participants must be at least 14 on event day.  

Is there a time limit? 

The event is not a race. Everyone should be able to walk at a comfortable pace. In order for the event to be managed safely and practically, there will be a cut-off time. This will be perfectly achievable provided you train well in advance and build up enough resilience that you can manage when you're tired. 

The full marathon walk should take approximately 8-9 hours for fit and strong walkers; others should allow longer. It may take some walkers up to 12 hours.

You need to be able to walk at an average pace of 3mph on good tarmac paths and pavements, and at least 2mph on rough or hilly ground. Bear this in mind when training - especially at the end of a long day - and it will help you manage your training and expectations.

Can I run?

No, we're afraid not. This is a fully supported event which is set up for walkers. We wouldn't be able to support runners as they are considerably faster and would be ahead of our support crews.

How will I find my way along the route?

The route will be well-marked with brightly coloured signage and there will be extra marshals at any sections that are less straightforward. 

What will I need to carry?

You'll need to carry whatever you want with you for the duration of the trek - spare clothes, waterproofs, sun cream, snacks, etc. 

Are there rest-stops along the way?

There will be manned check-points along the route - usually one in the morning, one in the afternoon, plus a lunch stop.

Can a friend who isn't signed up walk with me?

No, we're afraid not. The aim of the event is to raise as much money for Alzheimer's Society as possible so everyone taking part needs to be fully registered. Please do encourage your family and friends to join you on this great event.

Can I bring my dog?

No. We cannot be responsible for their welfare and invariably dogs are not as fit as they seem. Landowners frequently ask us not to bring dogs onto their lands which we must respect. Please just enjoy your dog's company on your training walks.
