Walk Your Ridgeway | The Hospice of St. Francis

Walk Your Ridgeway

Sunday 30th June 2024
Wendover or Princes Risborough

Join us and Walk Your Ridgeway, exploring the stunning ancient walkway.

This event was established during the restrictions of lockdown...but with those restrictions came the opportunity to develop a new found appreciation for our local area and the beauty that we are surrounded by!

The beautiful 26.2 mile route will start in Princes Risborough and meanders through ancient woodland, and open countryside to Wendover, this is where the Half Marathon route will begin. Both routes will take you through Tring Park and finally onto an impressive finish at Ivinghoe Beacon.

The marathon distance will also include a visit to The Hospice of St Francis to see our wonderful gardens. 

  • 13 miles - Wendover (Witchell Pavillion, HP22 6EG)  - Ivinghoe Beacon (Start time 11.30am)
  • 26 miles - Princes Risborough (Whiteleaf Carpark, Peters Lane) to Ivinghoe Beacon via The Hospice of St Francis (Start time 8.15am)

Your entry fee includes:

  • Hospice technical t-shirt (optional) 
  • Map
  • Check List of what to take
  • Checkpointed route monitored by Hospice staff and volunteers
  • Light refreshments at check points 
  • Finishers medal

We'll be asking all walkers to raise a minimum of £46 to support services such as our wellbeing team. £46 can fund two much needed 1-2-1 exercise sessions or relaxation activities for a patient.
