Ridgeway National Trail Autumn Events

Following the hard work of event organisers over the past few months, we can look forward to nine events on the Trail, starting with the running challenge Chiltern Wonderland 50 on Sat 12th September.

Three events are dedicated to raising money for local charities – PACE, St Francis Hospice and Rennie Grove – and all events promise an opportunity for people to enjoy exercise and soak up attractive scenery in a Covid-secure way.

All 2020 events will be different to previous years as a result of Covid-secure measures being introduced and there will also be lower participant numbers.

Please visit the Ridgeway National Trail newsletter for further information.
