Starting and finishing in the Stable Yard at the National Trust’s Trelissick Gardens,  the event includes

  • a Long Walk of about 15 miles or a Short Walk of about 6 miles (see map below)
  • ferry crossings specially arranged for the event by Cornwall Ferries and not available on any other occasion
  • a generous cream tea for all walkers
  • free parking all day at Trelissick for walkers

At least half of the entry fee is donated to the chosen charities.

Although there is no requirement to raise sponsorship, we hope you will feel able to make further donations on which we can claim Gift Aid.

A schematic map of the route for the Fal River Walk 2017 is shown below.

Please note that, owing to the tides, the 15 miles Long Walk will take the opposite direction from last year.

The 6 miles Short Walk is unchanged from previous years.
