Are you up for the challenge of the Rothschild Way?

On Saturday 24th June 2017 we will be holding the Rothschild Way Challenge, a 39-mile walk starting at National Trust Wicken Fen and finishing at the iconic Rothschild Bungalow in Woodwalton Fen National Nature Reserve. You can read all about this long-distance path here.

Are you up for taking part in the challenge?

The Trust is looking for participants willing to take up the challenge to complete the walk in under 17 hours, and we encourage participants to try to raise £100 in sponsorship. The money will support work to create and manage wildlife habitats in the Great Fen. The walk helps us to celebrate our natural heritage and the route travels through some of our most iconic Cambridgeshire landscape.

You will start the day early with breakfast at National Trust Wicken Fen, the walk will take you along lovely riverside areas full of wildlife and you will finish at the beautiful Rothschild's Bungalow to collect your medal and certificate. Most importantly, you will be raising money for one of the most amazing conservation projects in the country today.

If you can't manage the whole 39 miles then get a team together of two or four walkers and do a stage each.
