Many congratulations from Breast Cancer Care and woman&home to all our wonderful Leeds Castle Pink Ribbonwalkers! It was a wonderful day and we hope that you all enjoyed yourselves. We will be emailing you with an online questionnaire and look forward to your feedback. In the meantime please email pinkribbonwalk@breastcancercare.org.uk if you want to let us know about your experiences on the day.

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who gave up so much of their time to help us at the event. We really couldn’t make the Pink Ribbonwalk such a success without your support. If you would be interested in volunteering at next year’s Pink Ribbonwalk please email rwassistant@breastcancercare.org.uk. Thank you also to all the very generous companies who donated their products to us on the day; they were hugely appreciated by all involved.

Don’t forget that your £100 sponsorship needs to be with us by Friday 25 July.

Well done, we hope you are immensely proud of your fantastic achievement and have your medal somewhere for all to see!

 

Routes

20 mile route

Average walking time:  6 to 9.5 hours walking including rest stops

The walk sets off from our event village, set high above the estate, with fantastic views of the castle and surrounding lakes. We explore the estate gardens, taking in a classic view of the castle and its moat before leaving the estate and venturing on to Harrietsham to pick up the Pilgrim’s Way. We continue on to the North Downs Way, along woodland tracks and past small villages before joining the Greensand Way and heading back towards the Leeds Castle Estate.

10 mile route

Average walking time: 3 to 5 hours walking including rest stops

The route is as described above except that where the 20 mile walkers go north to Harrietsham and onward to the North Downs Way, the 10 mile walkers go south, picking up the Greensand Way and heading back towards Leeds Castle Estate.
