Memory Walk will start and finish in the event site at the Jamboree Stone which is located near the centre of the park.

There are two Memory Walk routes – you choose which to walk on the day of the event. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change, and suitable footwear is recommended.
The shorter 3.5km walk is a gentle stroll around the park which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. This route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance due to a hill along the route.
The longer 7km walk is a little more challenging, and will take you around the lakeside, moors and woodlands. The route has some uneven and muddy terrain. This route is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the nature of the pathways.

The meeting point and car parks are on grass. The short route is on paved paths and suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs with assistance, due to the hill on route.

Safety of all Memory Walk participants, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and working hard to deliver amazing events, whilst following all necessary Government guidance and precautions.
All our Memory Walk events hold the We’re Good To Go Industry Standard and follow government and industry Covid-19 guidelines, have a risk assessment in place and processes to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
Memory Walk may look a little different this year, but it will still retain the amazing atmosphere that makes the event so special!
