4th Capital Challenge -  Saturday 4th April 2020

From John Walker:

"Fancy a long walk around the parks of London on a spring day? The LDWA London group organise a 25 mile event each year - next spring it will be held on Saturday 4th April.

Crossing the Thames from the South Bank, the 2020 route passes through six royal parks, starting with Victoria Tower Gardens and ending with Brompton Cemetery, and passing through Holland Park and several historic neighbourhoods along the way. It then re-crosses the Thames to wend through the parks, wooded areas, and historically and architecturally interesting districts of Battersea, Clapham, Dulwich, and Sydenham, ending with a tour of Crystal Palace Park and a hot drink and cake to finish the day. As with the original route, this new route strikes a balance between well-known areas of the city and hidden treasures, with a few surprises thrown in.

Full details of the Capital Challenge event can be found on the SiEntries website at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?elid=Y&event_id=6020.

Many of the Wiltshire group members have shown an interest in taking part in this event and nine have already entered. There will be plenty of sites to stop and stare at so we will not be going at a fast pace.

If sufficient Wiltshire walkers enter, it may be possible to organise a minibus to take us to and from the event, although walkers would be required to make some contribution to the cost.

The Capital Challenge is a very popular event and it is limited to 200 entrants. It only opened for entrants two days ago but it has already reached 113. So if you would like to take part please don’t delay.

After you have entered please send an email to the address below, so that we know how many Wiltshire members will be taking part."

Kind regards
