The London to Brighton Freedom Hike is an epic 2 day hike from Richmond in South London, walking all the way over the beautiful North Downs to Brighton by the sea. It is an amazing experience, very tough with two full days of walking, but lots of fresh air and a feel good atmosphere to keep you going.
Anyone with decent walking fitness can participate. Your hiking experience which could be one of the best challenges of your life, will also be so so impactful. Any fundraising done will contribute towards our young women in Tanzania, to support them as they break free from poverty to live happy and independent lives🔥
