Rotary Across Wales Walk

Virtual 2021  18-20 June

This years Rotary Across Wales Walk has gone virtual…. providing a great opportunity to connect at a time when doing so in person is not so easy and is more accessible than ever.

There has been much pondering and days of hopeful dances as we’ve considered how best to keep safe our participants, our volunteers and the communities through which we pass. Although we’d love to see you all, this year we thought we’d do things a little differently and hopefully stir your hearts and stretch your toes for a time when we can meet once again.

RAWW – Virtual 2021
Whether you want to wobble across Wales in a weekend, shimmy around the shire or play in the parklands, a variety of distances will entice you to be uber ultra, a marvellous marathoner or a fun time, sun time saunterer.
Why not join us on our virtual weekend as we walk across Wales and support others with Mencap Cymru.

What and when:
• A virtual event from Friday 18 – Sunday 20 June
• Walk or run your way along your chosen virtual distance
• It’s not only for the big people – with a range of distance options to choose from there’s something for everyone, so if you want a reason to escape – either alone or together, tire out the little folk or just get some lovely family time. Distances from 8 – 47 miles
• Why not
• Everyone taking part will receive a medal
• Have explorations with a little focus and challenge
How far:
• As far as you like with one of the five distance options: 47 miles/75km; 32 miles /50km; 26 miles; 13 miles; 8 miles
• Simply run or walk your chosen distance, whatever your ability and preference and spread over three days or do it in one hit.
How do I submit my mileage?
• At the end of the event, add up your miles using whatever method you log them – Strava, Endomondo, Garmin etc. (even old fashioned pen & paper) and send them over to us
• You do not need to fundraise but feel free to do so if you wish. All profit from the virtual will go to Mencap Cymru
