WEEKENDER ROUTE:

The ultimate weekend exploring the Ridgeway with a relaxing and rejuvenating halfway basecamp to enjoy with your friends.

Route: Lewknor to Avebury
Distance: 100k
Elevation: 3,704ft

Recognised as the oldest path in Britain, the route takes you on a journey along the iconic Ridgeway. Stopping overnight at the half way point, you can rest up and get ready to head back out on to the trails the following day.

Stretching back through the generations for 5,000 years, this route is bursting with history at every twist and turn. From Bronze Age Hill Forts to Roman river crossings, you are invited to walk through the ages along this Stones Trail.

NON-STOP ROUTE:

Route: Lewknor to Avebury
Distance: 100k
Elevation: 3,704ft

Setting off from Lewknor in Oxfordshire, you will venture into the North Wessex Downs wandering through golden corn, vast fields and stunning countryside as far as the eye can see.

From the Uffington White Horse to Liddington Castle, your journey promises to be rich in both history and breathtaking scenery. Trekking through the day and night, it is a true test of endurance to see if you can triumph the trails and finish smiling at the iconic Avebury Stone Circle.

DAY 1 ROUTE:

Route: Lewknor to Basecamp
Distance: 50k
Elevation: 1,973ft

Heading off on this incredible journey from the start line at Lewknor with thousands of other trekkers, you will immediately feel right at home on the trails.

Wandering through the woodland before coming down into the renowned ‘field of dreams’, the only thing that can beat this moment is when you cross the finish line! With the route ending at the fantastic basecamp, there will be food, bars and a chilled atmosphere awaiting your arrival.

DAY 2 ROUTE:

Route: Basecamp to Avebury
Distance: 50k
Elevation: 1,731ft

Heading off from the basecamp early Sunday morning, you will be following in the steps of Vikings, Romans and Kings. With the prehistoric Uffington White Horse hill figure and the Liddington Castle fort, your journey will be rich with history.

Ending at the iconic Avebury Stone circle, it is the perfect finishing site for this incredible challenge. Basking in the awe of the largest stone circle in Europe, there is no greater place to stop and reflect on all you have accomplished.
