The 25km trek gets you out walking in some of the finest landmarks and countryside the garden of England has to offer. From the Historic Dockyard where HMS Victory was built, to the Norman Cathedral and Castle in Rochester, follow the winding River Medway on the Medway Valley Walk, you'll soon be at the top of the North Downs with spectacular views over the southern part of the county. Strolling down around Blue Bell Hill and mystic Kit's Coty, before taking in some specular scenery before dropping down to cross the A249 at historic Detling.

A final incline up to the top of the downs to White Horse Wood Country Park where you will be awarded your finishers medal. Here, you will have the opportunity to put your feet up and revel in the knowledge that not only have you achieved something great but that you have also raised hard-needed funds for your chosen charity, as well as Kent Search and Rescue. Helping more people in their hour of need.


Preparation from 6.00 am

Arrive at the Historic Dockyard Chatham, book in, take on some food and fluids and do some stretches to ensure you are ready for the off!

Start 6.30 am - 9.30 am

The trek is not a race and therefore in order to avoid congestion we will be starting groups of walkers off in 5 minute intervals for this 3 hour period.

Finish 3.00 pm

This is the cut-off time for those walking the 25km – This is when you can put your feet up knowing you have done an awesome job celebrating with a hard-earned medal and memories of a wonderful day raising much-needed funds for Kent charities.
