Event details

Hike For A Cure takes place on the magnificent Jurassic Coast and is exclusively for Alzheimer’s Research UK supporters. Take on the walk solo, with friends, or meet people on the day who share a connection to dementia.

Your 18-mile hike will start and finish overlooking Corfe Castle. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, you’ll be rewarded with your medal, snacks, and refreshments. Along the route there will be fully stocked pit stops where you can stop to chat to volunteers and other walkers, or just take a well-earned break!

If you’d love to take part but you’re looking for a different location, you can join us in the Peak District, which takes place in September with different distances! Whichever route you pick, you’ll be surrounded by stunning natural views while you raise awareness and vital funds.
