On Saturday 1st September you are invited to come and walk a section of The Sussex Hospice Trail with us!
Each year the Sussex Hospice Trail is marshalled and all hospices encourage supporters to go and walk a section. This year we are looking to get a record number of people on the trail walking a single section!
A whole support team from St Wilfrid's Hospice will be doing Walk 26 - Halnaker to Chichester, a 10 mile ramble across the countryside and we'd love to have you join us. Gather a team together and you will get:
- Free parking at Chichester High School and a warm welcome from the St Wilfrid's support team
- Free coach travel kindly supported by Woods Travel coaches to the start of the walk
- Walking marshals who will carry a first aid kit, and be there to help motivate people along
- A back marker to ensure no one is left behind
- A walkers' passport and an exclusive commemorative medal at the end of the walk and refreshments
Teams of 2-8 can participate with a one off entry fee per team depending on team size. We also encourage you to gather sponsorship of your walk and help to raise awareness of what you are doing for your local hospice. Your nominated team captain will receive a comprehensive resource pack with fundraising and sponsorship information.
With a downloadable app, printed maps and marshals along this route walkers will be in no danger of getting lost.
How much does it cost?
All registration fees goes to your local hospice - so be sure to choose St Wilfrid's Hospice, Chichester from the list and donate your registration fee straight to us
- Teams up to 4: £40 registration fee
- Teams up to 8: £80 registration fee
We ask that each person doing the walk aims to raise a minimum of £60 sponsorship money to support St Wilfrid's end of life care in your community.
All about the walk...
Its 10 mile linear walk from Halnaker crossroads to Chichester rail station in West Sussex along the Sussex Hospices Trail. This stretch of the trail is packed with interest, leading you through Halnaker Park (with a very long magnificent stretch of flint wall and mansion ruins), past Goodwood Racecourse, over St Roche’s Hill, along the Centurion Way and finally visiting Chichester Cathedral. From the summit of St Roche’s Hill you will be rewarded with some of the best views of the whole trail, a panoramic vista taking in Chichester Harbour, Chichester Cathedral and a long stretch of the coast to the south, as well as the South Downs to the north.
Other walks along the trail available on 1st September...
If this walk sounds too hilly or long for you there are other Sussex Hospice Trail walks that are flatter and shorter. You can read all about them here. On the 1st September there will be marshals at the beginning and end of each walk to give you tips, and to give you a medal at the end. Any walk you choose to do that day will benefit a hospice - be sure to choose St Wilfrid's Hospice, Chichester from the drop down list at registration.
Free parking provided by Chichester High School, and free coach travel to the starting line provided by
