Starting in Scotland, Macmillan have created an event called the Loch Lomond Mighty Hike on the 3rd June 2017. This 26-mile hike is not for the faint hearted but when completed, the achievement can be soaked up in the tranquil village of Tarbet. This walk will start in Stirling and is stretched out along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, which is the biggest loch/lake in Britain. So, this walk will certainly be a walk to remember.
Peak District Mighty Hike
The peak district is a great walk for any hikers as it has many hills to defeat, but once complete the views are not to be missed. This 26-mile hike will walk alongside the River Dove and the Tissington trail to eventually end at Buxton. This is a great hike to test out your walking boots in, as there are many hills and different terrains to test them out on. This will take place on the 2nd September 2017 paired up with Macmillan.

So, a perfect way to take part is joining up with The British Heart Foundation to make it even more of an achievement. This walk takes place on the 8th July 2017 starting in Horton-in-Ribblesdale.
