Walk for Willow

This year we want you to get your walking shoes on to ensure every step makes a difference for Willow.

Choose to walk where you want, when you want , who you want to walk – it’s entirely up to you.  But step out for Willow and make your every step count.  Ask your friends, family, colleagues to sponsor.  Whether you’re planning on taking on a 5 mile walk or a 100 mile trek there’s plenty of inspiration below:

We are delighted to announce we are once more charity partner of the Ultra Challenge Series – a range of fantastic treks taking place across the UK.

Most of the 2,000 challengers who take part in each of these great events will cover the route at a pace that suits them, most will walk, some will jog parts, and a few will run the whole course. All will have special reasons for taking it on - all will experience a test of determination and stamina. It's tough, but achievable, and highly rewarding, and you’ll get full support every step of the way - from kit advice, optional training walks, to great hospitality on the day.  Most challenges have three distance options (full, half and quarter) with registration fees and fundraising targets to match.

Chiltern 50 

29 September 2018

Walk, jog or run 50km. The challenge cuts through a stunning section of the Chiltern Hills, starting in Henley next to the River Thames. Our route follows the Chiltern Way, the historic Ridgeway trail which is one of the oldest roads in England, and the ancient Icknield Way, with rest stops enroute with snacks & drinks, and lunch at half way. There're a few ups & downs before descending to the town of Princes Risborough where the finish line and tented village await, where can enjoy the celebrations, food, drink, and entertainment, well into the Saturday night.
