What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 3km or longer 6km walk for a gentle stroll alongside the Racecourse, home of the internationally known Ebor Festival, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

All routes will start and finish on the grassed area nearest Knavesmire Road, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Amongst the excitement take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.

How to get there

Memory Walk will start and finish on the grassed area by the racecourse which is located just off Knavesmire Road. You can find us by following our signs from Knavesmire Road and Racecourse Road, or by walking directly from Tadcaster Road towards York Racecourse.

There is limited event parking at the Knavesmire so please car share where possible. Please use postcode YO23 1EX. City centre parking is 1km from the event, with York Station 2km away, and several park & ride routes close-by.

To keep York environmentally friendly please choose the most sustainable method of transport.
