Bucks Hospital Hike is a brand new event for 2022. So why not step up for the challenge and join us for this two day hike across Buckinghamshire. Taking place on the 10-11 September and covering a total of 50 miles across two days, the event will not only be challenge but a fantastic way to take in the beautiful Bucks countryside while fundraising to support your local NHS hospitals.

Day 1 will see us following footpaths and bridleways from Amersham hospital to Great Missenden, Wendover, Stoke Mandeville hospital and finishing at Princes Risborough where overnight accommodation will be provided.

Day 2 from Princes Risborough will pass Bledlow Ridge, West Wycombe, Stokenchurch, High Wycombe hospital and Penn before reaching the finishing line at Amersham hospital.

Our Hospital Hike aims to bring patients, family, friends and neighbours from across our community together with the common goal of raising funds for Buckinghamshire NHS hospitals. You can walk as an individual or as part of a team, which ever you choose rest assured you will be walking with the Scannappeal family.
