Immerse yourself in the very best of this beautiful rural county as you travel across Neolithic landscapes, take in panoramic views and walk amongst Avebury’s World Heritage Stone Circle.

There's a 26 or 13 mile route to choose from. Make a day of it and join us afterwards for a complementary glass of fizz and a hog roast at the The Kings Arms, All Cannings.

Registration fees and fundraising

13 miles
Registration fee: £15

We would love our trekkers to try and raise a minimum of £200 – enough to provide a whole day of care for a child like Betty, to give her family a much-needed break.

Remember: Your registration fee helps to cover towards the costs of organising the event - it’s the money you raise that makes the difference to our families.

Harry and Reuben having a cuddle in the garden

Big brother Harry Byrne challenged his friends and family to join him in a race around the moon – and they completed it twice! The eight-year-old walked, cycled and swam the mega distance to raise money for Julia’s House and to show his love for his brother Reuben.

Reuben was born with a very rare condition that causes brain deterioration and seizures. The respite care breaks and sibling support provided by Julia’s House has been a lifeline for the Wiltshire family.
