KM Charity Walk

Hundreds of walkers will enjoy a beautiful summer stroll for fun or for a good cause at the KM Charity Walk on Sunday, June 23.

Youngsters under 16 go free and dogs on leads are welcome making it a great day out for everyone.

Participants can follow a five- or 10-mile circular route starting from Grade II listed mansion Mote House in Maidstone. Both are designed to be varied, interesting and fairly flat with occasional hills and the longer route takes in views of Leeds Castle. Children can complete fun scavenger hunt challenges set by the Kent Wildlife Trust as they go.

Walkers can take part for fun or to raise sponsorship for any good cause of their choice. Individuals raising £200 or more will go into a prize draw to win a pair of Eurostar tickets.

Nominated charities will receive 70% of sponsorship with the remainder going to the child literacy and road safety work of the KM Charity Team, which is organising the event.

Goody bags and medals will be given out at the finish line where there will also be a garden party featuring live music, barbecue, and food and drink stalls.

This year, there will be a scarecrow trail starring scarecrows made by Kent schools and charities, and walkers will be able to vote for their favourites.

Tickets for adults are £11.50 each but there is a £1.50 discount with the booking code VK19.

Under-16s go free when booking online. Check-in time is between 8am and 10am and the walk officially begins at 9am.
