Chris West, contract manager at Everyone Active, commented: “This is a fantastic event of which we’re proud to support. As a company, we’re passionate about getting more people, more active, more often. Walking is not only great for physical health but mental health too.

“We wish the event huge success and would encourage the local community to dust off their walking shoes and get involved!”


"Having lived in the Alton area from a very young age and having discovered (like many) lots of walks I had no idea existed during lockdown, I am delighted to be sponsoring such an event.” Charles Henry
