Event description

Description

Starting from the Whitwell car park, there is a short walk to the Bluebells and back (2 miles = 3km) and you can then do a longer walk along the lake shore and back (3 miles = 5km) or go even further to the sunken church and back (6 miles = 10km). But don't worry if you are not sure you can make it as you can stop and turn around at any time.

For the more energetic, you can cycle all the way around Rutland Water (17 miles = 27km) or visit the Hambleton peninsula on the way as well (25 miles = 40km in total).

And of course you are free to wander and enjoy the lakeside setting.

The aim is to have a fun day out and raise funds for Crohn's and Colitis UK

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No, the only requirement is that anyone under 18 years old is accompanied by an adult.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Although there are buses, your best bet is to drive or get a lift to the Whitwell Car Park (and back home again). There should be plenty of parking available - it is a buy-a-ticket-before-you-exit car park, so make sure you have change or a card to pay for your ticket before you get back in your car to drive off.

What can I bring to the event?

As well as the walk and cycle ride, Rutland water is a lovely place to explore or simply spend some time. There is room to kick a ball around and some BBQ stands if you want to cook your own meal during the day, but open fires are not allowed on the grass

Can I bring my dog?

Pets are welcome, but please make sure you keep them under control (as there will be lots of people around, including small children)


What about buggies and pushchairs and wheelchairs?

If the weather has been wet, some of the paths will be muddy. And there is one part of the path back from the bluebells which is steep and may be difficult to manage in a wheelchair without someone pushing from behind.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

The easiest option for us is if you email us as we have a group of people monitoring this. But you can telephone 07434731970 as well if email is not possible.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes you can - if for example you change your contact details. But don't worry too much about changes, as we will check details when you arrive on the day and we realise that a lot of attendees will have IBD and could simply be too ill on the day. But do contact us if there are lots more coming as this will speed up registration on the day.

Is it ok if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends?

We will be registering people who attend on the day, so if someone comes in your place that is fine - although we will have to write all the new details down if you don't register on-line beforehand and that could take some time if there are lots of people arriving at the same time.


I tried to register, but registration ended on 3 May - can I still come?

We need time to print out all the paperwork for the day, so online registrations close early. But we are sure there will be room for you if you come to our registration tent on the day.
