Come and join Macmillan for a beautiful summertime walk around Telford. Enjoy a 12 mile walk, past many of the notable and interesting parts of Telford while raising money for a wonderful cause. The walk is open to all over the age of 14 and starts at 10am.

A family walk of 3 miles around Telford Town Park will be starting at 11am with all ages welcome, under 5s are free. There will be some entertainment, including kiddy go-karts, face painting and a fun warm-up before the walk starts.

Telford Hornets Rugby Club, Hinkshay Rd, Dawley, TF4 3NZ
Follow signs to Wonderland from Finger Road, Dawley. Follow Hinkshay Rd and keep going on to Dark Lane. Take care if using GPS as Google Maps will take you to the wrong location if you enter 'Telford Hornets Rugby Club'. It is best to use Hinkshay Road, Dawley for GPS.
Starts at Telford Town Park, exploring many parts of Telford on pavements and off-road. The route is the South Telford Heritage Trail with some lovely walking in the Telford countryside - in particular, some beautiful views of Ironbridge.
Mostly flat terrain with some hills. The route does have a few challenging obstacles, such as steep steps and narrow woodland path, although most of the route is easily accessible by most adults (or young adults). The route is NOT pushchair friendly due to a long stretch of narrow path with no alternate route.
Water stop at the Green Wood Café, Coalbrookdale

Entrants for the 3-mile walk will each receive a medal and a goodie bag after completing the course.
