Date: Sunday 13th June 2021

Location: Nailsea, Somerset

Enjoy a walk, run or bike ride in the countryside and raise money for Designability at the same time!

Take on a challenge in the beautiful countryside in aid of Designability

We would love for you to sign-up to take part in what has become a firm favourite with hundreds of people and a well established fundraiser in North Somerset.

Get together, enjoy the local countryside through a sponsored walk, run or bike ride – alone, or with friends and family – and raise money to support the work that we do.

Runners can also take part although they will not be timed, they will be “off road” over footpaths (often grass / dirt) with gates, stiles etc. and with some self-navigation.

The routes available

There are three routes to choose from which all start and finish at the Scotch Horn Centre in Nailsea:

The Nailsea 5K aka “The Stroll”
This is a great option for families because it is intended to be a relatively easy, fun walk – pushchair and wheelchair friendly!

The Nailsea 10K
This is intended for people who would prefer a route that is longer and slightly more challenging.

The 20K Nailsea Challenge
This is for the more experienced, who are fit and who like more of a challenge.

Please note: A guided walk is available for the 5K and for the 10K options.

Bike Ride options:

In 2021, FOR THE FIRST TIME, you can choose from three different bike routes for you to enjoy, 25k, 50k or 100k, all through our local countryside for ages 13 or over.

A Rotary event in aid of local organisations

Nailsea and Backwell Rotary act as facilitators for this event: they organise it, provide publicity, registration forms, maps and instructions to guide the participants, marshals (where appropriate) and administration.

Everyone who completes a walk, run or bike ride receives a medal and a certificate of achievement.

The registration fee to walk or run is £8 per person.

The registration fee to bike ride is £10 per person.
