Welcome to Walk The Test Way
Walk and raise money for YOUR chosen charity.
Up to this year our Walk has raised over Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand pounds, and as walker numbers were higher this year we are anticipating the final sums raised will be higher too!
Since the Walk we have been busy recording all the sponsorship sent in to us, and have been chasing walkers who have not yet sent in theirs.
There is still sponsorship to come in, and a further email reminder will be sent to those walkers this week, so please collect and send in yours if you have not done so already, we want to make payment to your chosen charity as soon as possible!
..........but you will be pleased to hear we will be sending out these cheques this week.

Here is a message from our Walk Chair following the Walk on October 6th 2013.
What a great autumn day we had for WALK 2013, which was our 10th we all enjoyed it because you the WALKERS enjoyed it!
We hope you liked your Bacon Baps and Hot Beverages by Romsey Explorer Scouts and that it got you off to a fortified start!
There were 600 of you walking this year and we were delighted that so many of you, around 180 walked the "Marathon".
We were so pleased to have you taking it on you were all superb and such great fun.
I should know I followed you down and the atmosphere was magnificent!
Fellow Marshals have told me the same tale about all the Walkers and we were absolutely delighted to have you with us.
I am sure that whatever distances you chose; you found it a challenge, and in turn satisfying.
Please stay in touch by visiting our web page, and make sure that you get sponsorship monies to us soonest so that we are able to make the distributions as soon as we can.
We will update the site with news throughout the year.
Please let us have your photographs, I took plenty of them for you!
Don't forget you can load your photos direct by clicking on the gallery drop down tab on the home web page.
Also we would be delighted to have your feedback both good and bad, as we are always looking for constant improvement.
What you really want to know is that next years Walk is on Sunday October 12th 2014....see you all then!
Thanks for making it such a super day!

In 2012 well over 500 walkers turned out for YOUR Charities - Many Congratulations.
Naomi House, the largest charity, had over 46 walkers and we were delighted to work closely with them and over 100 other Local and National charities."... thank you for such a well-organised walk yesterday. Signage was spot-on and cheery marshalls encouraged and helped us safely on our way."
A huge THANK YOU to all who walked the Test Way with Rotary on 14th October 2012.
What you said about the 2012 walk:
"Just wanted to say "Thank You" for another very enjoyable walk. My husband and I have raised about £200 for the Subarachnoid Haemorrhage Fund at the SGH Neurological Centre."
"I would just like to say a Big Thank You for a brilliant day on Sunday. We had a cold, muddy, wet walk but loved every minute of it so thank you!"
"Being involved with another Rotary Club, we appreciate just how much work - seen and unseen - goes into making such events successful, safe and enjoyable."
"... very well done for organising such a great walk in glorious weather yesterday..."
