Story

The Derbyshire Cricket Foundations T20 Walkathon returns for 2024 in partnership with the Derbyshire Cricket Over 60s to complete the Derbyshire element of a national campaign 'Ron's Walks'.

We are delighted to announce that the walk this year will be raising money for the Derbyshire Cricket Foundation as well as The Bob Willis Fund which supports Prostate Cancer UK.

Join us on Friday 30th June to take part in either a 20-mile or 5-mile sponsored walk.

Walking contributes hugely to our overall well-being and what better way to challenge yourself, than with a sponsored walk. The route has been specifically designed, with the bonus of a shorter distance for those who are able to join us later in the day. This social event appeals to everyone from those looking to challenge themselves individually or as part of a group, to those with younger families or people looking for a gentler route.

Whichever route you decide we will be encouraging walkers to explore some of Derbyshire's most picturesque countryside and Idyllic cricket clubs. Starting off at Derbyshire County Cricket Clubs' County Ground, we will take in Parkers Piece, Darley Abbey, Breadsall, and Stanley before passing through Locko Park, Spondon, Ockbrook, Borrowash, Elvaston, and then finally back to Derby (the 5-mile route is a shorter, circular version of the route, also starting and finishing at the County Ground).

You will be welcomed back with some much-needed refreshments and then we will invite you to sit back and relax with family, friends and enjoy the Vitality Blast T20 game between the Derbyshire Falcons and Northamptonshire Steelbacks.

9am Arrival for the 20 mile walk, with the event starting at 10am

4pm Arrival for the 5 mile walk.

Why Take Part?

Our T20 walkathon event helps us raise vital funds which are used to deliver projects in Derby City and the wider county with the aim of empowering communities and improving lives. For 2024, we are also raising money for the Bob Willis Fund and Prostate Cancer UK.

Money raised will also help us support more people through our Access to Cricket Grants, providing grants of up to £300 to enable people to access cricket who might not otherwise afford to.
