£12,100 donated to Help for Heroes in 2019


For the first time in ten years, 2020 saw the postponement of the Malvern Hills Challenge due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The circumstances of the event and the need for social distancing meant that it was not possible to organise and run the event in a safe and compliant manner that participants would enjoy. 


However, keeping optimistic, we are now looking ahead to 2021 and ‘relaunching’ our planning and preparation for next year - aiming to run the 10th Malvern Hills Challenge on Saturday 18th September.  All the features you have come to expect will be in place with an improved event with the familiar veteran team pulling everything together.  


Putting the disappointment of 2020 behind us, we can look forward to a successful event in 2021.  Updated news and information on MHC-21 is available here and on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social media channels, see the links at the bottom of the page. 


If you are tempted to walk across the Malvern Hills in September and October and would still like to support Help for Heroes this year, please go to our 2020 Just Giving Page and make a donation, it will remain live until the end of the year.

To mark the 10th Anniversary of running the Malvern Hills Challenge, we have introduced new branding.  This was done in collaboration with Malvern College, our main sponsor for MHC-21.  In January 2020 we launched a competition to develop the new designs, to convey the spirit of the Malvern Hills Challenge and the 10th Anniversary Event. This has been a great success, with students from the college creating some exciting new designs. Read more about the competition, the winners and the students who were involved here, and the MHC-21 designs here.
