The Walk of Life will be happening once again this year on Saturday 13th May 2017 and that the all-day route has been extended to a 26.2 mile walking marathon, starting from The Crown Inn (Bishops Cannings) and travelling along the Kennet & Avon canal via Bradford on Avon and into Bath.
In the end, the 2016 walk saw just over 300 walkers take part in the event to raise funds for the RUH Cancer Care Campaign and various other wards and departments at the Royal United Hospital. It raised an incredible £45,000 that will help transform care for our patients from all across Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire.
I do hope this doesn’t cause you too much inconvenience on the day. We are expecting to have a similar number of walkers participating this year and will do everything to ensure there is minimum disruption along the route.
If you know anyone who may be interested in signing up and joining us on this beautiful walk – it’s not too late!
