The BIG Walk 23 April 2022

By taking part in the BIG Walk you will have the opportunity to take in beautiful views and scenery through woodlands and along parts of the Icknield Way and the Ridgeway Trail as well as making a BIG impact!

Challenge yourself to take on the full 18-mile route, or one of the shorter distances, and help transform the lives of the inspirational children and young people at Pace.

By taking part you will be helping us to provide life changing support to over 400 children and young people.

The Routes

The 18, 12 and 6 mile routes take in beautiful views and scenery through woodlands and parts of the Icknield Way and the Ridgeway National Trail.

The Ridgeway offers a journey through magnificent scenery as well as a passage through time. It is an ancient track which was used by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers.

The trail winds through fields, past small woodlands and passes through nature reserves with lovely views over the Chilterns and is an important habitat for wildlife, flowers, and birds.

You will also experience the highest viewpoint in the Chilterns, Coombe Hill. From the summit of Coombe Hill, you experience wonderful views over the Aylesbury Vale.

You then make a short descent into Wendover.

The Superhero Mile

A fun, family friendly event which is open to all ages and abilities – where small steps can make a BIG difference.

Dress as your favourite superhero (optional) and whether you are superman or super gran, we will clap, cheer and support our superheroes as they walk around the grounds of the John Colet School.

All in aid of our superheroes at Pace!
