Men's Walk is Back for 2020!


Hospiscare's Men's Walk participants and dog


On a rainy and blustery day in March 2019, over 960 men walked in aid of our local charity, making it the most successful Men’s Walk to date.

Back for its ninth year, we are aiming to attract over 1000 walkers, calling on all lovers of rugby to join Men’s Walk 2020, which is surely due for a spell of winter sunshine.

Registration for Hospiscare’s Men’s Walk 2020 is now open. The popular Exeter event, which is taking place on Saturday 14 March, promises to be the busiest yet, with the opportunity to watch all three of the final Six Nations matches on large LED screens in heated marquees.

As before, the eight-mile route will start at the Double Locks canal-side pub and follow the picturesque riverside Exe Valley Way as far as Miller’s Crossing Bridge, where it will cross the river and then return to the Double Locks, via Mill on the Exe.  There will be plenty of entertainment and refreshment stops along the way.

The Men’s Walk is a proven sell-out success, so register early to guarantee a place. The event is once again kindly sponsored by Wilkinson Grant, with pints supplied by Exeter Brewery and pasties provided by Chunk and Clive’s Pies.

Individual entry is £25 while a team of four is £80. All walkers (who must be aged 12 years or over) receive a Men’s Walk 2020 T-shirt, a pint (or soft drink) and a hot pasty.

If your partner, sister, mother or friend would like to support the event, we will be looking for over 50 marshals to help on the day. If you know anyone who would like to help guide our walkers, please call 01392 688020 or email
