5VW 2018 Key Event Info

This sponsored walk through the stunning Cotswold countryside has something for everyone; whether you bring your friends, family or your work colleagues along, or even your four-legged friends.

The Five Valleys Walk is suitable for all ages and abilities. You can choose your distance to suit you – from just a couple of miles to the full 21 miles. You can also start and finish at any checkpoint and once you’re ready to call it a day, a Stagecoach bus will be on hand to offer you a FREE ride back to your starting point. 

Please note: There will be no checkpoints at Wycliffe Preparatory School and Dudbridge this year. Checkpoint One will be located at the Stroud Cricket Club, with ample parking for you to leave your car and the opportunity to enjoy a hog roast, a drink at the bar and a shower! Checkpoints open at 8.30am and will be closing at 5.30pm, except the Cricket Club, which will be open until 10pm for you to wind down, rest those sore feet and relax in the sunshine before you head home.

For any questions please have a look at our FAQs in the first instance. If your question isn't listed, you can contact our Event Organiser Carrie Bater by emailing or calling 01453 769 017.

Why not set up a fundraising page – after all 21 miles is a long way to walk. If you are unable to join us this year, please donate whatever you can; we really do appreciate it.

If you fancy a spot of volunteering, either on the day or before the event, please get in touch - we would love to hear from you. The Five Valleys Walk takes months of planning and we are always on the lookout for anyone that can help over the summer months with our preparations.
