For the walk you will be blind folded and will need to reach the finish line 1 mile away. The route will consist of pathways, road crossing leading to an open field. The route will be marked along the way for your guide to be able to assist you, we expect the walk to take you no longer than 60 mins. Remember it isn’t a race, we’d like all participants to enjoy the event in a safe way. The part your guide will play is to assist you during your walk & keep you safe, guiding you from any immediate dangers. There will be marshals at check points along the way, should you require assistance/first aid and to ensure you are following the correct route.
*100% of donations raised via our just giving page, direct to us in the practice and on the day will go to the Charity RNIB.
