Joining The Sports Tour
There are a number of ways that people can get involved in the walk. For most people, this will involve forming a team to take on the 21 mile journey. We will also have need for teams of Marshals at each of the checkpoints to help us ensure that all the walkers safely complete each stage. We are also looking for companies to back the event as sponsors.
Teams of 5 walkers enter to complete the course together. While most walkers will look to complete the full distance, team members can choose to share the stages out using their own support vehicle to carry resting walkers between stages. The registration fee for each walker is £10 and this includes a t-shirt. For an optional additional £15, a walker can purchase an event hoodie. Teams can register using the form below. All walkers will aim to raise a minimum of £100 in personal sponsorship.
We will need a team of 2 or 3 marshals at each of the 5 checkpoints. Their role is to check the teams of walkers in at each checkpoint. The registration fee for each marshal is £10 and this includes a t-shirt. For an optional additional £15 (approx., tbc) , a walker can purchase an event hoodie. Marshals will be recruited by the Event team.
Our main sponsor is AG Cranes. Their donation will be used to cover the costs of the event and anything remaining will be added to the fundraising pot. Costs include event banner, celebrity guest t-shirts, support vehicle door signs, water for the walkers and first aid materials.
The walk is a 21 mile route and we have recruited companies to sponsor each mile for a donation of £150.
In return, the sponsors names will be added to the t-shirts of each team and their logos will have pride of place on the event banners that we will stand behind at regular intervals throughout the event.
