Rob's Big Walk'19

Rob's Big Walk 2019

22nd June 2019 - 23rd June 2019
All Day

The Essex Way is a way-marked 82-mile long walk, starting in Epping in the southwest, crossing the Dedham Vale and Constable country, finishing at the port of Harwich on the Stour estuary.

It passes through ancient woodlands, open farmland, tree-lined river valleys and leafy green lanes, unveiling historic towns and villages along the way. Follow the poppies……………..

Calling Local Businesses, Groups and Clubs………
Following the route of The Essex Way Relay Race, we have divided the entire 82 mile route into ten bite sized pieces and are looking for teams made up of any number to take on the challenge of walking a section and raising at least £1000 for the Rob George Foundation. There will be a check- in at each start/end point with directions for walkers, emergency supplies and medals for participants!

When?………
This walking event will take place over the Summer Solstice Weekend of 22nd/23rd June 2019. Walking will take place in daylight hours only. Each team will have an allocated start time and an experienced Rob George Foundation “pace-setter” will lead each team. All walkers will be free to either keep up with the pace (approx. 3 miles/hr) or walk at their own speed – the pace-setters are only there to make sure our Olympic Torch makes it to the next team’s start point on schedule!

Why?…….
The Rob George Foundation exists in memory of Rob, who died aged 21 in 2013, after a battle bravely fought against Leukaemia. Please visit: http://www.therobgeorgefoundation.org for lots of information on the work we do.

We aim:-

  1. To provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or
    terminal illnesses.
  2. To provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment
    and/or ability in the worlds of sport or performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.

And one more thing…..
Please come and walk with us because you can, and because you owe it to yourself to get up and
out and to explore the beautiful Essex countryside on your doorstep! You will be amazed by its
variety and splendour. Whether you choose to rise with the mid summer sun or at a more leisurely
time, this is your opportunity to mark the summer and achieve something really special in the
company of family, friends and colleagues!!

The Eiffel Tower

Rob's Ride 19

31st July 2019 - 5th August 2019
12:00 am

Rob’s Ride 2019

in aid of The Rob George Foundation
Reg. Charity No:1156026

Event Full – Thank you for your continuing support.

“The London Eye to The Eiffel Tower”

If you like riding your bike, however seriously, then the London to Paris ride will be on your list of “must do” rides. This Rob George Foundation ride offers an alternative approach to the classic fast and furious approach (zooming down the main roads) – we will be following the route of the Avenue Verte. Cyclists will be free to go at their own pace but the group will be re-united at regular stops along the way. The final section each day will be cycled as a group, arriving at our overnight stops together.

247 miles – 400 kms
70% off road
We will follow national cycle routes, river paths, disused railway tracks and where ever possible quiet “B” roads. NB. Some short sections (especially as we navigate our way out of London) travel up the odd busier road.
This ride is suitable for hybrid and mountain bikes.

Wed 31st July – Mon 5th Aug’19

For more information on the event and now to book your place, please download the Rob’s Ride 19 – Itinerary and Booking Form.
