This was a tester to see whether enough people would want to take part in a similar event to our Wander, but in September. Uptake was very slow at first, but a flurry of entries in the past two weeks meant we were able to go ahead. We are pleased that we did, because there were 87 entries, with 79 actually taking part and all finishing! The numbers were much lower than for the Wander, of course, but considering that most established walks/runs are experiencing much reduced number, we were satisfied. Added to that, everyone seemed to enjoy it, with many being very complimentary, especially about how scenic the course was. So we will hold the Saunter again next year on 23rd September 2023.

I would like to thank the RAYNET volunteers who manned the radio communications in the school and at the checkpoints, and all the Rotarians and friends who helped, either in the school or on the course. Thanks also to Rtns Richard Pennell and Chris Wheatley for the photos.
We will have made around £1,000, which we will be giving to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
back We were pleased with the response to the first Saunter in 2022, particularly how much people enjoyed the route. So the 2023 Saunter will be over the same route.
