About the event

Coming into its sixth year, Mind Hike is Mind's bespoke trekking event, which sees teams of hikers challenging themselves and each other to hike for 24 hours, while raising money for Mind.

In 2020, Mind Hike is going to Yorkshire, to the beautiful seaside town of Whitby. You'll wind through Whitby's narrow streets, visit Robin Hood's Bay, climb the famous 199 Steps and look for Dracula in the historic Whitby Abbey.

This is a tough challenge, requiring preparation and training, but your teammates will be there to help you cross the finish line. Apply for this unique event today and create unforgettable memories and friendships. Whether you sign up by yourself or with your friends, family or colleagues, you will immediately become a member of our Mind Hike family. We can't wait for you to join us.

NOTE: Completing this application form does not guarantee you a place on Mind Hike. Please do not pay your registration fee or start fundraising until you have received an email from Mind confirming your place on Mind Hike. This can take up to a month after submitting your application. Teams are welcome but please submit one application form per person.
