​Long March Challenge 2021

Calderdale Sponsored Night Hike

Long March Challenge 2021

Welcome to Calderdale’s original sponsored night hike!

Take on the hills, battle the weather and conquer the tarmac to raise some money for one of Calderdale’s most deserving causes!

You will follow a secret 26 mile route around Calderdale, guided only by our friendly marshals. We provide refreshments, first aid and motivation along the way but completing the route is ultimately down to how much you want it. Your hard work will be rewarded though, because every penny you raise goes directly to the charity you are walking for!

What are waiting for?
Sign up now and get walking to support Yorkshire Children’s Trust this Easter!

This next march is on Midnight – 10am, Easter 2021
