The route

The RidgeWalk follows the oldest path in Britain – the Ridgeway. Starting at Crowmarsh Village Hall, the route will take you on an exhilarating mental and physical 13 mile challenge before finishing at Field Farm in Watlington.

Event registration will open at 6.45am until 7.30am at Crowmarsh Village Hall. A short event briefing will then take place before the claxon sounds for the start at 8.00am. You will then have six hours to take on the 13 mile route.

At the finish will be music, hot food, drinks, massages and much more, so why not get your family and friends to come along and cheer you over the finish line!
