This June, the Naomi House & Jacksplace Clarendon Way Walk is back with early bird discount before 24th March! The current discounted price is £18 for adults (aged 16+) and £12 for children (aged 8-15).
In its 13th year, the 26 mile walk on 2nd June takes budding walkers across open countryside from Winchester Cathedral to the new finish line in the middle of Salisbury’s bustling Market Square. A 12 mile route is also available, starting in the village of Broughton.
Charlotte Patrick, Events Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:
The Clarendon Way Walk continues to grow and we are expecting this year to be the biggest and best yet. Walkers can expect beautiful scenery, great comradeship and fabulous weather alongside unrivalled support and organisation. We hope the event will raise enough money to fund more than 7,000 hours of high quality nursing care, which is so desperately needed by local children, young adults and their families. It’s a challenging but enjoyable event, and a great way to get fit and explore some of Hampshire and Wiltshire’s most beautiful countryside.
Staff at the hospices, based in Sutton Scotney near Winchester, say the event is already proving extremely popular, with 150 people having already signed up. More than 1,000 people took on the trek in 2018, raising over £100,000.
The walk passes through Winchester’s picturesque Farley Mount Country Park and the villages of King’s Somborne, Houghton, Broughton, Winterslow and Pitton, before passing close to the site of Clarendon Palace on the approach to Salisbury and the Cathedral’s towering spire.
