Ben-efit is delighted to be an event partner for the
Hell of the Ashdown 2023
Come and say Hi to us!
Named after local hero Major General James Wolfe, the Wolfe of Westerham is a sportive to do battle with. Welcome to its 5th year! 2nd year for us supporting.
You’ll head out from Westerham Brewery and follow the 40 or 72 mile course through the beautiful Kent and Surrey countryside. Along the way you’ll be taking on 940 / 1865 metres in total climbing and testing your strength on local legendary climbs such as Yorks Hill, Hubbards Hill, Crockhams Hill and Toys Hill.
When you’ve defeated the ride what better way to finish off a great day’s cycling than at our host and sportive partner - Westerham Brewery. Each rider will get a beer token to have a beer on the organisers. Sit back, relax and enjoy the grounds of Westerham Brewery and sample the tap room beers. We’ll also have the Tour de France live along with street food trucks.
Come join us for a day of summer cycling at its very best.

The 2022 route will follow most of the original HOTA course with riders covering just over 100km, and 1750 metres of climbing taking on a number of well known and feared climbs and cols including favourites such as Toys Hill, Markbeech, Wych Cross, Twyford Lane, Colemans Hatch (The Wall), Groombridge, Hobbs Hill, Hubbards Hill and Brasted Hill.
The event is run in aid of Chartwell Cancer Trust and Valence School, Westerham with part of the proceeds going towards supporting people with cancer and disabilities.
