The Mini Mendip took place on Sunday 6 September and saw over 300 people take to the Somerset countryside and challenging themselves by taking on an adapted version of Weston Hospicecare’s flagship event The Mendip Challenge.
The 10-mile Mini Mendip route started at Weston Cricket Club before travelling along the stunning Brean Down Way to the turnaround point in Brean, before heading back to the cricket club via the Old Church of St Nicholas with breath-taking views across Weston-super-Mare and The Mendip Hills.
You can still get involved and claim your medal! Take on The Virtual Mini Mendip. Entry into The Virtual Mini Mendip will get you:
- A map of The Mini Mendip route to walk, or you can walk any 10 mile route in the world within the month of September
- Exclusive medal to show off your achievements
Or you can become a Mendip Hero and donate to support our event. The Mendip Challenge traditionally brings in over £85,000 every year, supporting local families going through one of the toughest times of their lives. It is the hope of the hospice that The Mini Mendip will help to bridge some of the gap in a year where we have faced unprecedented challenges, and you can be part of it!
