Walk for Parkinson's - Calke Abbey
Join us for our Walk for Parkinson's in the beautiful Calke Abbey.
- Start and finish: Calke Abbey
- Minimum sponsorship: £50 suggested
- Advance registration: £12 for adults and £5 for under 16s
- Registration on the day: £15 for adults and £7.50 for under 16s
- Registration opens: 9.15am
- Start time: 10am
- Routes: 2.1 miles or 7.1 miles
This will be our 9th year at Calke Abbey and to mark this we have updated our routes. The 2.1 mile walk is a gentle stroll around the grounds of Calke Abbey taking in all the sights, including the main house entrance. Our 7.1 mile walk follows the Ticknall Tramway Trail. The trail takes you through tunnels and arches all steeped in history.
We suggest that all walkers aim to raise at least £50. Your entry fee goes towards the cost of organising the walk, but by raising £50 in sponsorship, you can make a huge difference to the lives of people with Parkinson’s.
Parking: There is free parking for all participants.
Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome.
Accessibility: Please note that both routes are primarily on paths but do start and finish on grass, therefore they are not suitable for wheelchairs.
Walk packs: Your walk T-shirt and fundraising pack will be sent soon after your registration and your number and on the day information will be sent the week prior to the walk.
Registration: Please note registration closes just over a week prior to the event. On-the-day registration will be available and will cost £15 for adults and £7.50 for under 16s.
What you'll receive
- A Walk for Parkinson's T-shirt
