Routes

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 2km walk is a gentle stroll around the lake which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. The longer 7km walk is a little more challenging and will take you around this historical park. Both routes are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance, due to the nature of the pathways.

COVID-19 Safety

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 legal guidance and precautions.

 

All our Memory Walk events hold the 'We’re Good To Go' industry standard, which means you can be reassured we have everything in place to keep you safe. Each event has been thoroughly risk-assessed and we've implemented a number of processes and measures from the guidance provided by the Government. 

 

Memory Walk may look a little different this year, but it will still retain the amazing atmosphere that makes the event so special! Check out the below and our event safety guide for more information.


What to expect

 

-   Multiple waves of walkers, meaning smaller numbers of participants in the event site and on the route, at any one time.

-   Separate start and finish points for our routes.

-   Reduced touchpoints to minimise contact between walkers and volunteers.

-   Hand sanitiser at regular intervals within the event site.

-   A site layout that still allows for social distancing between households of participants and volunteers.

-   One way and queuing systems in specific areas of the event, such as our merchandise tent.

-   Face coverings will be encouraged in any areas where 1m+ social distancings cannot be maintained.
