Join Macmillan for the Mighty Hikes experience

Do something mighty and walk a full or half marathon for charity in some of the most scenic parts of the UK.

Take part in the Mighty Hike

Grab your hiking boots and join Macmillan Cancer Support for a memorable challenge. Join thousands of other people hiking a full or half marathon to raise money for people with cancer and experience the amazing camaraderie and support along the way. These hikes are not only easily accessible but also give you an excellent opportunity to explore some of the most epic hiking routes across the UK – while raising vital funds for an incredible cause. You can bring family and friends along for the ride, or maybe even meet some new hiking companions. Better still, you get 10% off your registration fee when signing up as a team of more than five people.

Hiking in the most beautiful parts of the UK

Mighty Hikes takes place in several locations across the UK, from scenic coastal paths on the Jurassic Coast, and sweeping beaches on the Gower Peninsula to stunning mountain peaks in the Lake District, so there really is something for everyone. All you need to do is choose the hike that you want to take part in, fill out the registration form and then you can begin fundraising towards your £250 pledge.

A great way to kick-start your fundraising is to set up a JustGiving page so friends, family and colleagues can donate easily online. Fundraising doesn’t have to be complicated, you can do anything that works for you, whether that’s hosting an online quiz or getting people to sponsor a mile of your hike. Macmillan is 98% funded by voluntary donations so the most important thing is sharing the huge impact your fundraising is going to make for people living with cancer.

Start your Mighty Hike journey

You are guaranteed a fantastic day out while on your hike with regular refuelling pit stops, a buffet lunch and plenty of marshals on the route to make sure you stay on track and have all the support you need. Better still, when you get to the finish line you’ll have a medal and a glass of bubbly waiting for you. However long it takes you to get there, you’ll be amazed at how far you can go when you join up with other Mighty Hikers, walking for the same incredible cause.

The Mighty Hikes are also a great opportunity to embrace the incredible atmosphere and camaraderie of the day. Peak District Mighty Hiker Laura described her day as “such an amazing experience and seamlessly organised by Macmillan. A lovely couple of thousand people united for one cause, all checking in on each other with words of kindness and encouragement.”
