What is the MEGAHIKE Challenge? Its an endurance event where teams of 4 trekkers set off at day break ( 4.30am)and have 24 hours to complete the 50 mile route. But to beat MEGAHIKE teams need to beat the sun and complete the 50 mile route before the sun sets (17 – 18 hours).
This monster hike is set in the heart of the Pennines starting and finishing from Hollingworth Lake in Littleborough. MEGAHIKE is one of the toughest team challenges physically and mentally as they trek along sections of the ‘backbone’ of England, the Pennine Way. The teams climb 7000ft to complete the 5o miles.
MEGAHIKE, raises funds for MedEquip4Kids, the North of England’s leading charity that supports children in and out of hospital. Medequip4kids provide sick and injured children with the best medical and play equipment.
Team Neverest were using the Herbalife24Prolong endurance drink during the challenge.
