Challenge 2021

Start Date: 12th May 2021

The latest W4N Challenge…

… will commence on Wednesday 12th May “in virtual terms” at Norwich Cathedral and run until the last team gets to Paris – by combining their totals and walking the full 374.1 miles “virtually” in their own local area!

W4N Challenge 2021 is entirely free to enter!

We invite each team to donate 10% of their fundraising total to the Walking4Norfolk Fund for Unpaid Carers OR pay an optional entrance fee of £30 per head (total £150/team).

These are voluntary contributions allowing us to raise money for Walking4Norfolk. In return, we can offer you wider publicity for your charity or cause, a sense of community with all the other teams, the benefit of our Leaderboard mileage tracking system, some very friendly and often hilarious competition and, we hope, increased fitness and stamina!

Just fill out our Simple Signup to get started…

Our 2021 Challenge asks teams of five to walk ‘virtually’ from Norwich to Notre-Dame, Paris, to get Norfolk walking and raise much-needed funds for our charities!

Each member of the team will contribute the daily mileage s/he has walked locally (and legally!) towards accumulating a team total of 375 miles. This will successfully transport their team pin along the route from Norwich Cathedral to the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris!
