Would you like to walk from Malmesbury Abbey to Salisbury Cathedral over 18-19 May to raise funds to see the lives of young people changed?
We have also planned two 20km walks (one on each day). If 100km is a little to much and you want to get involved and help us raise funds then why not consider one of these walks (details below). If you are interested in being part of this challenge click here to email us.
The Wiltshire Youth for Christ team are walking 100km to raise funds for the work of Wiltshire Youth for Christ and have ten places on our challenge. If you like the sounds of this and are happy to raise sponsorship for our work then please get in touch with James Vaughton on 01225 336055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to request our participant pack.
The challenge: A 100km (60 miles) walk from Malmesbury Abbey to Salisbury Cathedral on 18-19 May. Limited to 10 places. All participants must be 18 or over.
Day 1: (Starting at 7am) Malmesbury Abbey to Melksham. This route will go via Castle Combe down the Macmillan Way to Bradford on Avon, where it will join the canal towpath until Bowerhill. We will stop in Melksham for the night.
Day 2: (Starting at 7am) Melksham to Salisbury Cathedral. Picking up the canal towpath to Seend. From Seend we will cross country to Potterne and Market Lavington. The route will then either take the right of way across Salisbury Plan or circumnavigate, depending on access. The route will then cross country to Salisbury Cathedral
A shorter Walk Wiltshire challenge: 20km (12 miles) routes
We recognise that not everyone will want to complete the whole 100km so have set up two 20km walks, one on day 1 and the other on day 2. If you would like to join us and raise sponsorship by walking one of the walks below 20km walking that would be great! N.B. please note times are approximate as will be dependent on walking pace (based on 4km per hour).
Day 1: Castle Combe to Bradford on Avon (20km) Leaving from Castle Combe 11.30/12-Arrving in BoA 4pm.
Day 2: Shrewton to Salisbury Cathedral (20km approx.) Leaving approx. 3pm/3.30pm – 7-7.30pm on Saturday 19th May
Open to those who are 12 and over. All participants under 18 will require parental consent and a named adult who is responsible for their well-being, taking part in the walk.
If taking part in the shorter walks you will be responsible for transport to the leaving point and pick up when you arrive at the end of the 20km walk.
