Taking part as a Participant

 

For those who are Riding and Striding on Saturday 9th September 2017, you are free to choose your own route and to visit as many of the churches in your area you choose to visit as you wish, between 10 am and 6 pm. You may cycle, walk, run, ride or drive to raise money for the region's historic churches and chapels of all denominations.

The money you raise from your sponsors will be divided between this Trust and the church or churches of your choice. The following list shows the Top Ten churches in 2016 - help yours to be listed.

Click here for List of Participating Churches or visit the Participating Churches page which includes late entries. You will be amazed at the variety of churches you will find in quite a small area.

Looking for a route to walk or cycle please see some suggested routes or maybe the Dever Valley or Itchen Valley.
