Hike for Homeless 2024

The most unique and anticipated walking event on the UK charity calendar.

We are pleased to announce that Hike for Homeless 2024 is happening on Saturday 8th June around the Abergavenny area in South Wales.

By raising funds and awareness by hiking in this beautiful part of Wales, we aim to provide essential support to young people at risk of homelessness in the West Midlands, who are in increasing need of our help.

There are 3 levels of Hike this year, from beginner to expert:


Skirrid - Short Route

This route spans 8 miles with 1 hill of 486m. It boasts incredible views and is perfect for beginners. It is said locally that the Earth from Skirrid Fawr is sacred, being spread in the foundations of many historical buildings nearby.

Twyn yr Allt - Medium route

Also inclusive of Skirrid, this route includes Twyn yr Allt and spans 15 miles, with 2 hills of 468m and 341m. In this area, you can see evidence of an Iron Age Hillfort from about 2000 years ago- defensive ditches which surrounded Celtic villages.

Sugar Loaf - Long route

Also inclusive of Skirrid and Twyn yr Allt, our longest route spans 23 miles, with 3 hills of 468m, 341m and 596m. Sugar Loaf provides a spectacular backdrop to the market town of Abergavenny with panoramic views across South Wales, the Brecon Beacons and into south-west England from its peak.

The views from each of these summits are stunning, making for great photo opportunities and quiet reflection, as well as the joy of reaching a shared goal with your friends, co-workers, and local community.

  • Short route approx. 8 miles – 9-10am start, 2/3 hours average
  • Medium route approx. 15 miles – 8-9am start, 5/6 hours average
  • Long route, approx. 23 miles – 7-8am start, 10/11 hours average

What Else Will The Event Involve?

Throughout the Hike, you will find many chances to rest and soak in the views at our strategic checkpoints.

We provide not only water and energy treats, but we have the most amazing marshals you will ever meet! There are no markers on this challenge- just a map/picture guide and/or GPS to guide you through. If in doubt- always ask a marshal.

There will be many chances to celebrate your success post-hike, including a massive community barbecue at a local pub, the Three Pools, who are pulling out all the stops for Team St Basils.

Want to rest in Wales? The Three Pools also have great accommodation, so please check out their Three Pools accommodation page.

Hike for Homeless Participant, 2023:

“Last year’s hike took us through some of the most breathtaking landscapes I’ve ever seen, with each step bringing us closer to our fundraising goal to help young people in the local area. But it wasn’t just the natural beauty that left a lasting impression- it was the people – the fellow hikers, volunteers, and organizers. We look forward to finding out the latest location every year!”

Special thanks to all at the Three Pools.
