The Big Walk 2017

A team of 352 walked 30 miles from the Principality Stadium, Cardiff to Kenfig Hill Rugby Club, Bridgend for The Big Walk 2017 in aid of Prostate Cymru.

Participants arrived bright and early on the morning of Saturday 10th June to start the walk on the covered pitch inside the iconic Principality Stadium. Walkers shared #SaveTheMalesInWales selfies and took part in a zumba warm-up led by David Adnum and friends. Walkers were joined by surprise guest Welsh rugby legend Sir Gareth Edwards CBE who offered the walkers words of encouragement and thanked them for taking part in the challenge.

Walkers were supported as they tackled the thirty mile route through Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan and Bridgend by a great team of marshalls and volunteers who ensured walkers were safe and provided the group with snacks and water. St John’s Ambulance were a brilliant support throughout the route, assisting with first aid and injuries.

Walkers crossed the finish line at Kenfig Hill Rugby Club in times ranging from approximately seven hours to nine hours, including rest stops at The Aubrey Arms & The Old Post, The Duke of Wellington and Heronston Hotel. At the finish line walkers were presented with medals and enjoyed a festival at the club including a raffle, food and live music from Rebecca Hurn and Reload.

Congratulations to all who took part in The Big Walk 2017 and thank you to everyone who has donated to Prostate Cymru so far.
