Your walk. Your way.

What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 2.5km walk for a gentle stroll around the showground which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 5.5km walk will be loops of the short route with an additional distance within the showground’s woodland. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.

All routes will start and finish in the heart of the showground, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and watch it blossom through the day.
