About the Hike


Our annual Father & Son 8km hike and retreat is back. A great overnight experience for Father & Son to bond, explore the outdoors and learn new exciting skills whilst raising funds for our £1.5 million 500 Orphan Girls Complex. Be a part of this Landmark project.  

 

Last year the hike took place over the weekend with over 70 participants attending. We arrived in Ingleton at 12.30pm, were given a briefing, some time to explore the hostel, make themselves comfortable and a hot drink to keep them warm. Despite the rain, mud and slippery terrain on both days, all participants managed to complete the 10km walk through the picturesque Ingleton waterfall trail. We stopped for a quick lunch break midway through the walk, giving all participants time to catch their breath, enjoy lunch with their sons whilst admiring  Ingleton’s natural beauty.

After completing the grueling walk, we made our way back to the hostel to cool down and refresh with the hot showers, ready to enjoy the waiting freshly cooked BBQ, pilau rice and chicken curry served with an array of side dishes and drinks. All participants then listened to a short presentation on how their participation will help change the lives of poor and vulnerable orphan girls. The first night was concluded with a ceremony to congratulate the participants on the successful completion of the 10km hike, they were all given a certificate of completion, a custom Ingleton medal and an Ar-Rahmah Trust gift bag.

Lights were off at 11pm to give the fathers and the sons time to rest and recuperate ready for the games and activities prepared for the next day. The final day began with dawn prayers and a short spiritual reminder to ensure we leave Ingleton on a spiritual high. A freshly prepared breakfast was then ready consisting of scrambled eggs, toast, baked beans an selection of cereals and tea and coffee.

All participants were split into teams consisting of fathers with their sons working together competing against the opposing teams on the exciting games and activities we had prepared for them including tug of war, walk the planks and the classic egg and spoon race. The trip ended with a short time to relax, get their breaths back and get ready to return on the awaiting coach. The event raised just over £9,000. We thank all participants for taking part in the Ingleton 2016 10km hike & retreat and helping support our £1.5 million 500 orphan girl project.
