The Collas Crill Island Walk is set to be another record breaker with over 1200 walkers signed up to take part in the three walks, matching last year’s numbers with a week to go.
Collas Crill group head of marketing, Iain Beresford said: “The momentum for the walk has really built and this is seen in our better than ever number of sign ups. So, a huge thank you to everyone who has registered for this year’s walk. However, we want to ensure that the chosen charities really benefit from everyone’s efforts, so don’t forget it’s the sponsorship money that really makes a difference to the charities and the community. Having three options for the walk; the full 48 miles, a relay and the 10.9 mile Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge opens the event with something for everyone. We look forward to seeing everyone next Saturday, especially as the weather looks perfect!”
The chosen charities that will benefit from the funds raised include; St John Ambulance, Durrell, Jersey Cheshire Home, Teenage Cancer Trust Jersey Appeal, Jersey Mencap, Silkworth, Les Amis, Ridout House and Age Concern Jersey.
A walking pack was sent out to each entrant earlier this week with their walk lanyards, a t-shirt, Collas Crill sunglasses and a route map. It is still possible to sign up for the walk and details can be found at www.ccislandwalk.com. Those with a late registration will have to pick up their packs on Friday 17 June from the finish marquee located at the Waterfront green on top of the car park. It will be manned from 12 noon until 6pm.
You can track progress and keep up to date with the walk on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
