Take a cake break this month, to raise money for Break!

Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs

Come and join an event that has now become a firm favourite with hundreds of people and is firmly established as an important part of the Nailsea calendar. People get together, enjoy the local countryside alone or with friends and family - and raise money for deserving local organisations at the same time. It’s a way for local charities, schools, sports clubs and similar groups to raise money for themselves through a sponsored walk or run. And – it’s a lot of fun!

Each year Rotary Nailsea & Backwell receives considerable praise for the choice and suitability of walks, for the administration, maps, instructions and signposting, for the attention to Health & Safety aspects and for the provision of a welcome pack of fruit and water as well as a successful completion set of medal and certificate.

As well as Walkers, Runners can also take part: they should note that they not be timed, they will be “off road” on a cross country route, over footpaths – often grass / dirt footpaths - with gates, stiles etc. along the way and some self navigation. Each participant will be raising money for a chosen cause.

There are three routes - all within the local area, and all starting from, and finishing at, the Scotch Horn Centre in Nailsea:

Nailsea 5K “The Stroll”          At 5 kilometers (approx 3 miles) this may appeal to families and is intended to be a relatively easy fun walk – pushchair and wheelchair friendly.        

The Nailsea 10K                     At 10 kilometers (approx 6 miles) this is intended for people who would prefer a route that is longer, and slightly more challenging.

The 20K Nailsea Challenge    At 20 kilometers (approx 12 miles) this is for the more experienced, who are fit and who like more of a challenge. 

Participants will be provided with maps and instructions, as well as a route and guidance telephone number and a separate emergency telephone number to call in case of difficulties - which has never been used so far! Each of the routes will have been tested by a number of volunteers in advance of the day.

The Rotary Club of Nailsea and Backwell act as facilitators, organising the whole event, providing advance publicity, registration forms, maps and instructions to guide the participants, marshals (if and where deemed appropriate) and administration on the day. Everyone who completes a Walk or Run will receive a medal and a certificate of achievement.

We ask for a Registration Fee of £6 per person, above the age of 18, to cover costs with the surplus given to Rotary Charities.
