Hinckley-based Planner, Mateusz Grygierzec has already signed up to take part. “I took part in a trek for the charity last year which was very enjoyable and couldn’t wait to sign up again this year. The Malvern Hills are beautiful I’m looking forward to taking on the challenge and raising funds for this great cause.”

The Malvern Hills consist of North Hill, Sugarloaf Hill, Worcestershire Beacon, Summer Hill, Perseverance Hill, Jubilee Hill, Pinnacle Hill, Black Hill, Herefordshire Beacon, Broad Down, Hangman’s Hill, Swinyard Hill, Midsummer Hill, Raggedstone Hill and Chase End Hill. This Challenge visits every single one of them.

The best hiking trails in the Malvern Hills explore the main ridge and gentle slopes, made up of fifteen distinct summits. The views are astounding, especially once the hills reach their zenith at the top of the Worcestershire Beacon at 1,394ft (425 m). To the south west, the gentle hills of the Cotswolds roll into the distance, whilst to the west the hills of Herefordshire are backed by distant Welsh mountains.
