Surrey Hills Trek Training and Kit Preparation Days

Are you considering a high altitude trek? it’s not just about having the right clothing and equipment, but more critically, that you have an understanding of the impact on your body and mind for the task ahead, that’s why the Surrey Hills Trek Training Day is just for you.

At Trek Hire UK, we have taken part in some of the greatest challenges around the world and are perfectly placed to help you condition yourself for your adventure.

Our dedicated training days are designed to …..encourage, motivate and provide you with the best knowledge possible in preparation for your trek.

We limit the number of people we take for each training day so we can make sure everyone benefits as much as possible, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you cant make the full day then why not pop in with your kit list and we can spend and hour or two with you helping you select the right clothing , equipment and accessories for your trek.

3 Peak Trek Training Walk – 17 miles

These Surrey Hills Trek Training and Kit Preparation Days are deliberately designed to help you best maximise your time and money for a long distance trekking challenge. In our experience, not everyone can take a weekend off to go to Snowdon or the lakes and not everyone can afford top of the range down sleeping bags and jackets etc…So we can help in both aspects, we sell clothing and equipment from our favourite brands in the shop but we can also hire to you those same brands of essential items too, therefore saving you money and the worry of finding the right gear for your trek.

The 17 mile (guided) hike over the Surrey Hills will give you a great indication as to your overall walking fitness as well as finding out if those old walking boots are still waterproof and not giving you blisters and if your prefered layering up system works, its really better to find out these things before you go than half way up Kilimanjaro on a wet windy day!  its also a good opportunity to borrow items from us for the day that you may not already have, including rucksacks, walking poles and head torches.

Hi Mick
Thanks for everything yesterday. Nicole and I both found it beneficial and a great experience. Some really nice people on the walk, will certainly recommend to others I know that are planning a trek!
