Open to walkers of all ages and abilities, whether you are an individual, group or family this is your opportunity to participate in an historical event, have some fun, and raise much needed money for your chosen causes.
This annual event allows walkers to raise money through sponsorship for their favourite charities whilst enjoying a very interesting walk through some beautiful parts of the Berkshire countryside re-tracing the old boundary of the ancient town of Maidenhead in the Royal County of Berkshire. Alternatively, participants can do the walk just for fun or to help raise money for the Rotary Club's own charitable work.
When: Sunday 3rd October
Distance: from 2.5 miles, or take on the whole challenge of 13.1 miles
Sponsorship: try to get as many sponsors as you can, you get to keep 100% of the funds you raise. Rotary is happy to support the causes close to your heart. If you don’t want to walk in aid of a charity then that is also fine, the more the merrier!
JOIN US in what we hope will be a fun event and an opportunity for walkers to participate in the history of the Boundary walk. Good luck!
Registration for group of 15 or more is just £20, if you register in advance by 10th September. So grab your friends, get your PTA together or charity group and get walking!

Supporting local charities
Recently Rotary have been supporting voluntary organisations hard hit by COVID 19, such as Thames Hospice, and Maidenhead FoodShare. In addition we have been busy running our own Covid-19 Volunteer Community Response Team by supporting more than 150 households with running errands such as shopping, prescription collection and even dog walking.
But our work doesn’t stop there; we’ve also been providing 23 families with weekly food parcels since the beginning of March. Helping those families whose children would normally receive free school meals but since the closure of the schools they have not had access to this vital lifeline.
If you would like to make a donation to Rotary so we can continue this vital work, you can do so when you register or via our PayPal Donate.
Organised by the Rotary Clubs of Maidenhead & Maidenhead Bridge
