If you have never joined us for this event before, what have you been doing?! The Mendip Challenge is an exciting event for those looking to have fun, challenge themselves and raise money for Weston Hospicecare. The routes – 30, 20, 10 miles – are open to all individuals, teams, families and dogs and take you along the West Mendip Way in the Somerset hills!
You can choose the distance that best suits you, and when you get back from your trek across the hills, there will be food and drink stalls, as well as music for you and your friends and family to enjoy. So, what are you waiting for? Dust off those walking boots (or trainers), and get hiking for a great cause.
* Please note children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult over 18. Suggested minimum age for 30 miles is 14 years with previous walking experience.
 ** ​Please ​note ​there ​is ​no ​parking ​in ​Westhaven ​School ​and ​limited ​parking ​around ​Uphill. ​Please ​allow ​plenty ​of ​time ​to ​park ​before ​registering. We ask that you ​carshare ​where ​possible.

The registration costs only just cover the cost of running the event, so we rely on your personal fundraising or donations to make sure that, together, we can raise as much as possible to provide free care at the hospice. Once you’ve registered, we’ll send you some tips on how to boost your fundraising, or you can call us on 01934 423960.
