YMCA DownsLink Challenge Walking Routes in Guildford

Do your own route for the YMCA DownsLink Challenge & help raise money to tackle youth homelessness


On Saturday 16th July we are hosting a 17.5-mile walking or running challenge, along the Downs Link pathway, which links Sussex to Surrey and is how our YMCA got it’s name! But, we realise that not everyone will be able to join us on that day, or, would prefer to take on a challenge closer to home.  So, if that’s you, why not take part in your own way.

Below is a link to some suggested walking routes in Guildford, or if you prefer you could literally do your steps in your garden or on a treadmill. It is completely up to you. However you choose to take part, every step will go a long way to supporting homeless young people.

Guildford Walking Routes

Did you know that every night we provide a safe home to over 750 young people in your community, each and everyone has faced serious challenges in their lives. As well as giving them a home, we enable them to develop the skills they need to create a brighter, independent, future. Will you challenge yourself to help them get back on the pathway to independence?

Registration costs £20 and includes a T-shirt and medal. We are asking everyone who takes part aims for a minimum fundraising target of £75.

Register here to take part in your own space and don’t forget to set up a JustGiving page to track your fundraising. 


Step out with us and together we can tackle youth homelessness!



YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by and faithful to our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
