North Downs 50 Challenge

North Downs 50 Challenge  image

Take on 50km from Farnham to Reigate in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and wonderful Surrey countryside, including the climb up the impressive Box Hill with fantastic views to the south.

Starting from Farnham Park we join the start of the North Downs Way, following the banks of the river Wey and giving views of the Hogs Back ridge. The route passes through the pretty village of Puttenham, and then re-joining the river Wey for a while, climbs to the beautiful St Martha’s Hill and St Martha’s Church, giving superb views to the south.

We join the Pilgrims Way for a short while as we descend into our halfway point in the village of Shere, before climbing back up onto the North Downs through Netley Park. Passing through woodland, we have excellent views of the South Downs in the distance and we pass the lovely St Barnabas Church at Ranmore Common before crossing through the famous Denbies Wine Estate. Crossing the river Mole, the route now climbs to the summit of the famous beauty spot of Box Hill with sweeping views. The path continues over Juniper Hill and Coley Hill before arriving at our finish above Reigate where celebration await!
