Important Notes for all Participants
Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs 2018 set two records: firstly, more than £26,000 was raised for local charities and youth organisations : secondly, a record number of over 300 people registered to walk or run in 2018. You can make a donation to Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs by selecting the MyDonate icon at the foot of this page.
Specific for Runners: We emphasise that the 10k and 20k routes are CROSS COUNTRY, OFF ROAD. They follow footpaths which are often grass or dirt, may be wet underfoot and including a few reasonably steep inclines/declines. There are gates and styles along the way. Whilst the routes are signed, participants may need to refer to maps from time to time, with a degree of SELF NAVIGATION.
General notes: 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. These should be studied and followed. Each of the routes will have been tested and walked by a number of volunteers in advance of the day.
We strongly advise each party (an individual or group of participants) to bring a fully charged mobile phone and to log that number with our reception desk on arrival.
All participants are required to register, in person, with the administration desk before setting off and MUST REPORT TO THE ADMINISTRATION DESK IN PERSON ON RETURN - this is very important as we need to ensure that each participant has come back safely.
Dogs: We have no objection to participants walking with dogs as long as they are kept under control so that they do not inconvenience other walkers, runners, the general public or any livestock. We ask that no dogs are taken into the Scotch Horn Centre - other than Guide Dogs.
- we expect all walkers and runners to act with courtesy towards other participants and the general public.
- all participants should respect the countryside code, for example by taking their litter with them and not leaving gates open.
- all participants are responsible for their own health and safety, eg by taking care when crossing roads, watching their footing (particularly when crossing fields, grass paths etc.) and being responsible for any children within their party.
All dogs must be kept under control, particularly if there are children or livestock within the vicinity.
The Rotary Club of Nailsea and Backwell act as facilitators. We organise the whole event, providing advance publicity, registration forms (online or offline), pro forma downloadable sponsorship forms (if required), the opportunity to set-up online individual sponsorship form with BT MyDonate, maps and route instructions to guide the participants, marshalls (where deemed appropriate) together with administration on the day. Everyone who completes a Walk will receive a medal and a certificate of achievement.
