What we're about


We are an established group of experienced hikers dedicated to enjoying the countryside for its fresh air, green spaces and the opportunity for socialising and fitness. Our hikes are usually around 10 miles or more in distance and include as many hills as we can pack in. Most hikes involve a picnic lunch (bring your own), and occasionally a pub lunch (for which we will pre-order). You are welcome to join us if you can maintain an energetic pace up hills for 4-5 hours. But, please read the Terms and conditions, before you join. This is a group for adults who are responsible for their own health and safety.

Terms and Conditions

Our H2I Hill Fitness events require a moderate level of fitness but do not need the ability to run. All our hikes require a good fitness level. (As a guideline hikers should be in good health and already participate in regular 10 mile undulating walks or several hours of moderate cardio-vascular exercise each week). We reserve the right to exclude people who lack sufficient fitness (and thereby generate liability for the group), participants inappropriately dressed for the hiking environment or those who are disagreeable and diminish the enjoyment of the group. We will also exclude those who persistently ‘no show’ or cancel at the last minute, thereby preventing other keen participants from taking their place on the hike.

By signing up for one of our walks you have agreed that you have understood and will adhere to these terms and conditions.

Leadership and Organisation

Hike to Indulge has been going strong as a Meetup group since early 2011. Personal trainer and trekking devotee, Alex Murphy established the group as an alternative to exercise in the gym. By leading small groups on hilly brisk-paced hikes, participants could burn calories, work leg muscles, while discovering new places and people in the great outdoors. At the end of most hikes we visit local independent country pubs for post hike drinks and laughs. The idea is: hike hard to earn your right to indulge.

INDULGE INSTEAD OF HIKE WITH THIS CALENDAR OF SOCIAL EVENTS Below is a link to a calendar of fun social events in and around London which might be of interest to H2I members. If you want to extend the good vibes and banter beyond the hikes connect with other H2I members and arrange to attend some of social events suggested. None of these events are run by H2I or can be booked through H2I. The calendar is simply for your information and it is up to individuals to arrange a time and place to meet, travel, tickets etc. Google Slides https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1GxtCcWQw15_xBTZNnzyPbIQOmyDu3YtgWmeio-MdtRA/edit#slide=id.p This social calendar is intended to be low maintenance so there are no sign up requirements. If you see an event which you would like to attend then chat with others in H2I to see who else is going. Just because an event is listed it does not necessarily mean anyone is actually going. Its up you to rustle up a fun crowd. There are no system notifications when the calendar is updated with new events, simply check the link below on an adhoc basis. IMPORTANT NOTE Please direct emails to [masked]. The calendar has been created and will be maintained by Paul M. Hike to Indulge and Alex are not responsible for any of the events or the calendar or its accuracy. Alex will be unable answer emails and questions about the events but is hoping the calendar will provide you with some fabulous opportunities to socialise beyond the hikes.
