If 26 miles is a bit of a stretch there are many more local events you can join to raise money for local hospice care. Distances range from 4km to 20km and suitable for all the family. If you would rather support local hospice care in a less active way, you can always support through the Tuckwell Chase Lottery.

Easter Walk for Phyllis Tuckwell

Sign up to the first Easter Walk, which is organised by Action Challenge, and raise money for local hospice care!

Heading out from Windsor along the River Thames on Easter Saturday the Easter Walk route passes through beautiful scenery, including Windsor Great Park. You’ll get full support & hospitality with rest stops, free food & drink, and a celebration finish line with medals, entertainment and glass of fizz.

With 25 miles or 25 km options this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself this Spring and get fit.

Starting at the Racecourse base camp – the 25 km loop heads along the Thames Path passing Alexandra & Home Park, with a pit stop for snacks & drinks near historic Runnymede, before heading to Windsor Great Park with magnificent views of the Castle. Then back to the base camp for the finish line celebrations.

The ’25 mile’ option initially takes in the same route as the 25 km’er, with lunch back at the Racecourse – followed by a 10 mile section heading west along the Thames Path, passing through the villages of Dorney & Eton Wick, and then following the Jubilee River back to our base camp.
