This is St Basils 16th Annual Walk challenge. It is held in a new location every year but many of the same teams come back year after year to complete the different challenge that every new location offers.

This is a team event (minimum team size 3 people) and is great for companies or groups wishing to do some team building (that comes from the need to navigate your way with a map, directions and photos), to improve health and fitness whilst still raising money for St Basils - the midlands youth homelessness charity with national reach.

Both walks will start and finish at Gloucester College (5 Acres Campus) in Christchurch. Walkers will walk through the town then up to Symonds Yat Rock viewing point with it's stunning views across the River Wye and the Wye Valley, walkers will then follow the Wye Valley route online the banks of the river. Following the route of a disused railway line, walkers will then walk up a very gradual incline entering the Forest of Dean itself. Those on the longer 26 mile route will take in much more of the Forest before coming back online the same route as everyone else which runs close to the sculpture trail and takes in the cycle centre and then returns to Christchurch and back to Base for a much deserved free meal!
