Registration fee

26 miles - £30

Your registration fee helps to cover towards the costs of organising the event but it’s the money you raise that helps us to pay for the care and comfort of a local child and their family. We would love all our trekkers to try and raise a minimum of £200. This would pay for seven hours of care for a poorly child, and respite for an exhausted mum or dad.

The route: 26 miles

The Great Wiltshire Walk is a mammoth 26-mile circular trek, starting and finishing at The Kings Arms in All Cannings.

The route will take in a variety of terrain with some very steep uphill and downhill sections but around every corner you will be rewarded with breath-taking views of the Wiltshire countryside.

Start time: 7.30am
Start location: The Kings Arms, Pub Lane, All Cannings, Devizes, SN10 3PA
