As last year, participants will walk along the stunning shoreline of Lake Vyrnwy and can choose to walk 2 miles or 12 miles. Both routes are entirely road surface and start and finish with slight hill at the award winning 4* lake Vyrnwy Hotel & Spa. The short route is fully accessible, going across the stone dam and back whilst the long route does a circular loop of the lake.
Walk for Parkinson’s provides a perfect opportunity for people to have fun, meet others affected by the condition in their area and unite in a common goal – to raise awareness and vital funds.
Registration costs just £10 per person (£5 under 16s) and we suggest all walkers fundraise a minimum of £50. Registration includes a complimentary breakfast roll and hot drinks courtesy of the hotel.
If any walkers would like to book an overnight stay at the hotel, they should let reception now they have entered the walk as 20% of their room fee will be donated to Parkinson’s UK.
