Walk the virtual Bristol Hospital Hike for Bristol city centre hospitals

Walk the distance between each of our nine hospitals in your own time, at your own pace and raise vital funds for our hospitals. Our fundraising team will be there to support you every step of the way!Bristol Hospital Hike

Suitable for all abilities, we have two great routes to choose from, covering the distance between all the hospitals we support in the heart of Bristol. Once signed up, we will send you a downloadable map to guide you on your hike, or alternatively you can walk the equivalent distance on a route of your choice.

Who will you walk for? The Bristol Hospital Hike is a wonderful way to walk in memory of a loved one, to celebrate the work of the NHS or to say thank you for the care you received. After signing up we will send you a sticker which you can wear on the day to let everyone know who you are walking for.

The routes

The Bristol Hospital Hero Trail: 2 miles

This family-friendly trail covers the distance between our hospitals in Bristol city centre. This is a great opportunity to get active with your family, friends or your four-legged furry companions while raising money for your local hospitals.

The Big Bristol Hospital Hike: 10 miles

Hike the virtual trail across the centre of Bristol, the iconic harbourside, through the scenic green spaces in south Bristol and the artistic streets of Southville, while passing nine of the hospitals we support along the way.

Take on this challenge individually or as a relay with your friends, family or work colleagues to collectively complete the distance.

When you register for the walk a fundraising page will automatically be created for you to share with friends and family. You can also raise money on your sponsored walk with a sponsorship form we’ll send in our fundraising pack.. After your event you can pay in any offline funds raised on the day through the ‘pay in’ button below.

Our NHS has done so much for us all this year, will you go the extra mile for them?
