Event Overview

Are you up for taking part in the challenge of this annual 39-mile sponsored walk?

The Wildlife Trust BCN welcomes participants willing to  take up the challenge to complete this 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. You can secure a place with a just £15 registration fee, or £35 for a team of four.

All participants will be sent our special Welcome Packs filled with route details, maps and fundraising ideas and training support will be provided in the lead up to the event.

Book your or your team’s place at https://bcn.wildlifetrustsevents.org/rothschild-challenge-2018#.WyjKsPZFxpj

Start at Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve, Lode Road, Ely CB7 5XP and finish at Woodwalton Fen.
