Event description

Description

The University of York has announced that The Great York Walk 2020, scheduled to take place on 31st May will be postponed until an appropriate date can be agreed for later in the year, due to the escalation in response to COVID-19 coronavirus in the UK.



The Great York Walk is back in 2020 to help transform mental health for everyone.

This year the walk will take place on May 31st and will follow a brand new route, offering walkers three distances to choose from: 10km, 20km or 40km.

The Walk will start at the University of York and will wind its way along the banks of the River Ouse and Foss, visiting historic sites such as York Minster and the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside before heading back to campus.

We'll collect a few details from you to make sure we can make your experience the very best it can be, and from there all you need to do is get training and get fundraising for the Mentally Fit York fund.

We can't wait to welcome you for The Great York Walk 2020 on 31 May 2020!

Notes:

  • Entry fees go directly towards the running of the event and are consistent across all distances to support the specialist outdoor team on the day, who charge on a 'per head' basis. We encourage you to take on the full walk to make the most of the challenge, but we also want to be flexible, and allow you to choose the most challenging option for you.
  • The event booking fee supports the services of our booking provider, Eventbrite. A little extra from you helps us to put on the best event possible!
  • There is a recommended fundraising target of £250 attached to walking the 40km route, a minimum fundraising target of £150 attached to walking the 20km route and a minimum fundraising target of £100 attached to walking the 10km route. All funds raised will go to the Mentally Fit York fund.
  • Final route distances are still to be confirmed, but will be in the region (within 2km) of the routes advertised.

Next steps:

  • Once you have purchased a place on the event, you will receive an automatic confirmation email.

  • You can then set up your YuStart fundraising page - YuStart is York’s own version of Just Giving, and allows us to give you tailored advice and support throughout your fundraising.

  • Download our Fundraising Toolkit and flick to page 5 and 6 to see our top tips on how to get started with your fundraising.

If you have any final questions that you need answering, please visit The Great York Walk webpage, read through our FAQs and Event Guidance Document, or send us an email on yustart@york.ac.uk.

The Great York Walk 2020 is organised by the University of York in association with Kuta Outdoors.
