Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs, 11 - 31 October 2020
At the present time, charities are really struggling with many fund raising events having to be cancelled. This event is going ahead and is an opportunity to help your favourite charity / local organisation by raising funds for them.

Due to the coronavirus situation the event, originally planned for 7 June, has been postponed to 11 October and can no longer be based, as in previous years, at the Scotch Horn Centre. The event will now be run as a "virtual event", with instructions and maps emailed to participants. If you are not able or prefer not to take part on the day, you will be able to do the walk or run at a time of your choosing between 11 October and the end of the month.
Walk or run with family, friends, colleagues or with other people - have fun and raise funds for your favourite charity or local community organisation at the same time.
In excess of £20,000 each year has been raised by the annual Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs over recent years and close to £150,000 raised since Rotary Nailsea & Backwell first held the event in 2012. Usually around 30 charities and local community organisations have taken part and those involved this year are listed here.
Will you help us to raise over £30,000 from the 2020 event?

As in previous years there are 3 routes all starting and finshing from the Scotch Horn Leisure Centre in Nailsea, where some parking is available:
- Nailsea 5K, "The Stroll". At 5 kilometres (approx. 3 miles) this may appeal to families and is an easy walk - stroller / pushchair, disability vehicle and wheelchair friendly.
- The Nailsea 10K. At 10 kilometres (approx. 6 miles) this is for people who would prefer a route that is longer and slightly more challenging.
- The 20K Nailsea Challenge. At 20 kilometres (approx 12 miles) this is for the more experienced who are fit and who would like more of a challenge.
You can walk or run any of the three routes but please note they will not be timed and that the 10K and 20K will be "off-road" on a cross country route, over footpaths - often grass / dirt paths with gates, stiles etc. along the way and require self-navigation.
Participants will be provided with maps and instructions. Each of the routes will have been tested by volunteers in advance of the event.
