Our 11-mile route takes you over the Malvern Hills, through ancient woodland, open moors and the historical sites at British Camp and Midsummer Hill.  As a moderately strenuous walk, the Malvern’s End to End Challenge is a great way to test yourself, whether you’re a novice pushing yourself to complete your hardest walk to date or a seasoned walker looking for a well-organised walk.
