Welcome to the Chandlers Ford Itchen Walk!
Raise money for your chosen community group, cause or charity by taking part in the next sponsored walk to be held on Sunday 11th June 2017.

Ask your supporters and donors to register for the walk and raise money. The sponsorship money you collect by using the BT MyDonate on-line method will be distributed 80% to the your chosen recipient (or 70% if collected manually), with the remainder going to Rotary supported charities and good causes - all sponsorship proceeds of the walk will be donated to community groups, causes or charities.
There will be two different walk lengths to suit different ages and preferences. The full walk will be about 10 miles long and the shorter walk about 7 miles long.
The walk will start at Kings Worthy following a route to Chandlers Ford along the Itchen Valley, following the River Itchen and the Itchen Navigation. If you do not wish to walk the whole length then you can start instead at Bar End, Winchester and walk about 7 miles. Why not take part and enjoy walking in the beautiful Itchen Valley which is so close to our community?
The walk will be fully marshalled and patrolled with medical services in attendance in case of any emergencies.
Registration costs £10 for adults and £5 for children up to 16 years of age. Early bookings will be at a reduced rate until 31st March 2017 of £8 for adults and £4 for children. Walkers in large teams will be entitled to a further discount and will be refunded 10% of the registration fee when their team registrations reach 10 or more.
Follow the navigation buttons at the top of this screen to register and take part!

Sunday 11th June 2017 will see the fourth sponsored walk along the Itchen Valley to Chandlers Ford. This is now an annual community event for the people of Chandlers Ford and the surrounding area. The recent increase in the walk length has proved a success and so will be repeated again in 2017, with a start point in Kings Worthy for those who prefer more of a challenge.
As before the reception point will be the Fryern Recreation Ground in Chandlers Ford, which is where the walk will also finish. After registration in the pavilion, walkers will be transported by bus to their chosen start point, either at Kings Worthy or at Bar end, Winchester.
