CHARITY CHALLENGES

OUR CHARITY PUB WALK – Sunday 19th August – Woburn

I am super excited to be doing this fun walk again this year and hoping that many of you can join in too.  This is a half marathon distance if you complete the whole walk but you have the option of doing stages of 3.5 miles for those not wanting to do such a long distance.  Each stage will end in a pub where we can refresh before the next stage.  As this is for charity, the walk is open to non Nordic walkers too, so bring your friends and family.  Well behaved dogs on lead are welcome too.  Registration is £12, £10 of which is going straight to the charity, which will be going to the Bedford Hospice Day Centre again.  They had many funding cuts this year so every penny is so appreciated.  Here are the stages:

Woburn to
Woburn Sands to
Ridgemont to
Eversholt via Segenhoe Church ruin to
Woburn.
For this walk it is essential you wear the correct footwear and carry water with you.  Snacks are a good idea too, however we are stopping throughout so there’s chances to grab something then.  At the end we will pile into the Black Horse for a celebratory drink. This was such a fab event last year (check out the top picture) with a great turnout.  If you could let me know you are interested in coming that would be great.  Woohoo!

BEDFORD MEMORY WALK – SUNDAY 23rd SEPTEMBER

This walk is a firm favourite with our walkers and we will be attending again this year and hopefully a lot of you will join the team.  It’s such a great cause which we are happy to support.  It covers 8K and is all on flat surfaces some of which is pavement.  It is such a great atmosphere and we always have a great time.  This will be a great challenge for all pace of walker including Gentle, so lets get those poles out, paws on and have a great day!

LONDON BRIDGES 10 MILE CHARITY WALK –
SUNDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 

This will be our 3rd time attending this fantastic event.  We cover 12 Bridges over 10 miles in London and it is just great fun.   This is a tough challenge as it is all on pavement, but it is well worth it.  It’s for Moderate walkers and this year we will start off together and then meet at the London Eye for a team photo and for a picnic.  Then we’ll meet at the Hung Drawn & Quartered Pub for a nice celebration meal at the end.  To register for this years challenge, go to:
