The Memory Trail
Sunday 22nd September 2013
The RICE Memory Trail – a sponsored walk for all the family. It is one of the longest running annual charity walks in Bath, first taking place in September 1993. The walk is suitable for the whole family to join in and each year takes place in the beautiful countryside surrounding Bath.
The 2013 Memory Trail starts at the wonderful medieval market town of Marshfield, 9 miles north of Bath. Three walks of 3, 5 or 8 miles will take you through some of the Cotswold’s most secluded and hidden valleys, steeped in Roman and medieval history and stories from the Civil War. The longer walks take you through the impressive village of Cold Ashton and the beautiful woods and valleys near St Catherine.
You can raise sponsorship or just bring yourselves, as your contribution through the registration fee is valuable to us. Encourage your friends to come as well and visit one of the wonderful local hostelries for lunch after your walk. Registration is between 10am and 12pm in the Marshfield Church Hall.
All entry fees and sponsorship raised goes to RICE for our research programme and for supporting and educating carers and families. Entry fees are £5 per adult; £2.50 per junior or £12 per family and we have a prize for the person who raises the highest sponsorship. It will be an excellent day out for all the family – and the dog can come to!
