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.
