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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 £175 sponsorship needs to be with us by Friday 19 July.
Well done, we hope you are immensely proud of your fantastic achievement and have your medal somewhere for all to see!
20 mile route
Average walking time: 6 to 9.5 hours walking including rest stops
Our event village, set high above the estate, has fantastic views of the castle and surrounding lakes. From here our walk sets off to explore the estate gardens, taking in a classic view of the castle and its moat before leaving the estate and venturing through Snarkhurst Wood and the village of Thurnham before approaching the historic village of Detling. There we enter the White Horse Wood Country Park before touching upon the Pilgrim’s Way on our way back towards Leeds Castle estate.
Average walking time: 3 to 5 hours walking including rest stops
The start and finish of the 10 mile route is the same as the 20 mile, however, in the village of Eyhorne Street the 10 mile walkers cut away west and pass through Coombe Wood before re-joining the 20 mile route along the Pilgrim’s Way.
