Start location: Convent Field, Lewes

Whether you’re an avid hiker or simply looking for a fun outdoor adventure, there’s something for everyone at this year’s event. Choose from three distances: 5, 9, or 15 miles.

A team of expert guides from What’s Not to Hike will lead you every step of the way, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

But, please remember. This event is about more than getting outdoors, and enjoying nature. Most importantly, it’s about community. It’s about friends coming together, to make a difference to those less fortunate.

The money you raise will help us to support people just like you and me, who find themselves without a safe and stable place to call home.


“I loved the day! It was challenging, as expected, but I loved meeting new people and hearing why The Passage was important to them. Everyone was lovely and supportive, it felt like we were a team who had known each other for years, rather than hours.”

– Ruby, South Downs Trekathon participant
