Every year two separate events take place, incorporating a hike (walk) and a bike (cycle). Both events are marshalled along the 20 mile route with the event starting and finishing at Horton Country Park LNR. Both events are free to take part, they are open to all ages and abilities and each participant who completes the route will receive a certificate.
The Round the Borough Hike event is scheduled to take place on Saturday 7th September 2019 - View the route.
Please note: Both the Hike and the Bike events will start early morning. Each participant needs to complete an individual registration form in order to make sure there is a pre-printed certificate ready for you when you finish.
Are you up for the challenge?
The Hike and Bike challenge involves the completion of both events, one after the other however, this does not have to be in the same calendar year. Participants who complete the challenge will receive a commemorative medal. Please note that you can enter one or both events.
Background of the Round the Borough Hike & Bike...
The Round the Borough Hike and Bike (RBHB) route aims to build on the London 2012 Olympic legacy and the success of hosting Stage 7 of the Tour of Britain in 2013. The Round the Borough Hike and Bike is an off-road route approximately 20 miles long that joins up the beautiful spaces in Epsom and Ewell including; the Epsom Downs, Epsom Common Local Nature Reserve (LNR), Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill LNR and Horton Country Park LNR.
The route is permanently marked with discs and can be completed at any time of the year. We suggest using off-road cycles if you are intending to cycle the route.
