On 12 May 2013, Derby Hospitals Charity will be running two simultaneous fund-raising events in Cromford and surrounding area.
For more intrepid souls, there is the opportunity to follow a 15 mile route described by the organisers as "challenging" , starting at Matlock Rugby Club, Cromford Meadows. Participants can decide for themselves whether to walk the route or take it at a run (I know which I`d choose!).
The more family-friendly version is a 2 mile stroll along the banks of the Cromford Canal, followed by a family fun day at the Rugby Club.
Please note that the longer route is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs, though the shorter canalside walk is more accessible.
There is an entry fee for each walk. The idea is that these fees will cover the cost of organising the event and that participants seek sponsorship to raise money for the charity.
