Could you navigate 13 of Dartmoor's wild and rugged tors? By taking on the challenge, you could help provide care for people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Explore one of the last true wildernesses in England. You’ll trek 15 miles through ancient woodland and sprawling moorland. On conquering each tor, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views across Dartmoor.

To help you get to the finish, there’ll be a cream tea waiting for you at the end of the trek. In addition, you and your fellow Marie Curie trekkers will be rewarded with finisher’s medals.

Is this trek for me?

A team of experienced mountain guides will be there to show you the way.
You’ll need a good level of fitness with prior training to take part in this challenge. Training tips will be provided. We also recommend that you’re familiar with basic map reading.

Supporting people living with a terminal illness

In 2017 our UK treks raised over £240,000. Every trekker helps us give people living with a terminal illness the care they need. So they can make the most of their last days with those they love.

A beautiful day out, exercising while being surrounded by breathtaking scenery - all in a lovely friendly atmosphere!
