This event is being organised by Karen and JP Edgington to raise money for the charity, Anthony Nolan, as part of Karen's fundraising towards her 2018 London Marathon challenge.

JP Edgington's business The Outer Edge, which has many years experience in delivering charity events, is providing the logistical support and JP and his team are volunteering their time to this so that costs can be kept as low as possible allowing us to raise as much as possible for  Anthony Nolan in memory of Karen's Dad who died ten years ago this April.

Comprising of 45-50 hard kilometres of hiking, this challenge requires constant awareness of where you're walking. Passing by Cut Hill, one of the most remotest points in England and with only one 'meet' of the support vehicle at Postbridge, you certainly feel 'out there'... because you are.

Heading out from the National Park boundary, just outside Belstone, our route winds its way across a variety of tough terrain - military roads, rough exposed moorland, sheep paths and the remains of a disused granite railway. After many miles and thousands of feet of ascent, we will near the end at the Park boundary on the outskirts of Ivybridge, before heading off for our well-earned breakfast at a local cafe.

This Night Hike is epically long; with difficult terrain to challenge your limits when your body and mind want to sleep. The challenge will be very tough; we might be rewarded with a cloudless, starlit night and an awesome sunrise or we could spend 14-16 hours only just being able to see the back of the person 10ft in front of us.

What is certain, is that you will feel a massive sense of acheivement and experience incredible camaraderie with your fellow 'Dawn Chasers'.
