Take on an Epic 20-Mile Walking Challenge This September to Help the Homeless

Julian House is calling on families, friends and work colleagues to take on its epic 20-mile walking challenge – The Circuit of Bath Walk.
The sponsored walk, now in its 21st year, takes place on Sunday 25th September 2022. Participants will be walking a circular route around the outskirts of Bath, taking in stunning views overlooking the historic city itself including the gorgeous vistas from Little Solsbury Hill and South Stoke Millennium Viewpoint.

While the charity is encouraging people to tackle the full 20-mile route, participants can choose their own distance and start point, thanks to the five checkpoints along the route and a free shuttle service between each.

Senior Community and Events Fundraiser Gavin Osborn said: “The Circuit of Bath Walk is an important event for everyone involved. Participants not only get an incredible sense of achievement from walking 20 miles over sometimes challenging terrain, but also the knowledge that the sponsorship they raise will help to rebuild lives. By taking part, you are enabling us to support vulnerable and at-risk individuals in our emergency hostel and domestic abuse refuge. You will be helping to save lives”.

Tickets are on sale now. £12 adult, £6 Child, £25 Family. Dogs are welcome and for younger families there are also buggy-friendly sections of the walk.

Self-care coach and Nordic Walking Instructor, Yvonne Bignall took on the challenge last year. She said: “We had so much fun, and it really is a beautiful circuit of Bath, places I had never seen before with spectacular views that feed the soul. Not to be missed!”

Gavin Osborn added: “Julian House has more than 40 projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises across the region. We hope people will aim to raise as much as they can, as while each participant’s entry fee goes towards the cost of organising the walk, every penny raised through sponsorship goes towards helping us support vulnerable people in our care”.
