Covid Safe Event

Find out what we are doing to keep you safe.

As always at our events the health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated with our planning, much of which will focus on how we deliver a safe event in the context of all necessary COVID-19 guidelines and precautions.

It may be that events look a little different this year but we are working proactively with our venues and suppliers to deliver a great experience on site.

We'll continue to review and update this page in line with government guidelines.

What happens if my event is cancelled because of COVID-19?

We hope that none of our Big Hike events are cancelled in 2022 and will do everything we can to keep our participants, staff and volunteers safe. However, if we are forced to cancel any of our events we will let all participants know as soon as possible and you will be entitled to a refund.

Is it safe for people in a clinically vulnerable group to attend a Big Hike?

We know that this is an important decision that we can’t make for participants. The health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

We’d strongly advise people considering attending a Big Hike event who are undergoing treatment for cancer, who have previously been diagnosed with the disease or are in a clinically vulnerable group to speak to their doctor first to discuss individual circumstances. We’d also advise that they check the latest government advice in the area of the UK they live in to help make an informed decision. Participants can refer to the latest guidance from the UK government, the Scottish government, the Welsh government and the Northern Ireland government.
