Plans are set for this year’s Tamar Trails challenge, designed to enable as many people as possible to take part.
Sam Barnes from the Tamar Valley AONB team said: ’We know that walking 18 miles is a challenge for some, so this year we are offering an additional option of doing the Discovery Trail Challenge as a relay team.
’The route from Calstock to Lifton is easily broken up into sections with the usual checkpoints in between. Why not get together a team and take on a section each to raise money for this year’s charity, CHICKS?’
The sections are:
Calstock Quay to Gunnislake Newbridge – 4 miles;
Gunnislake Newbridge to The Royal at Horsebridge – 5 miles;
The Royal at Horsebridge to Milton Abbot church – 4 miles;
Milton Abbot church to Kelly House – 2.5 miles;
Kelly House to Lifton (location TBC) – 3 miles;
or Milton Abbot church to Lifton – 5.5 miles;
The entry fee will remain at £20 per team (maximum of 5 per team). There is no minimum sponsorship that you have to reach.
The Discovery Trail Challenge will take place on Saturday, July 2.
CHICKS is a national children’s charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. The charity has retreats in Devon, Cornwall and Derbyshire.
