This year will be our 19th Annual Walk the Test Way! It was launched in 2003 and since then has raised over 1m for charities, both local and worldwide.
Read on to find out how you sign up?
Step #1 - Who would you like to raise money for?
This is sometimes the most tricky part. There are so many charities out there to choose from and so many in need right now.
If you really cannot decide then why not raise funds for Rotary Club of Romsey Test. We support lots of great charities some big some small in our local community. Have a look at our website to find out more about what we do.
Step #2 - How far would you like to walk?
Would you like to give yourself a challenge or do you just fancy a beautiful walk along the Test Way? Either way, you will have a fabulous day. All walkers must check in on the day at the Crossfield Hall in Romsey. We then have coaches to take you to your chosen start point. So check your distance and be ready at the Crossfield Hall to catch your bus.
*under 18s must be registered by parent/guardian
*under 16s on the walk must be accompanied by an adult
*we allow dogs on the walk although these must be kept on a lead
Step #3 - Sponsorship!
Before you get yourself registered, we recommend that you set up your own "just giving" page for this purpose. Once set up it is very effective and convenient way of collecting your sponsorship money. You will need your Just Giving Link when you register for the walk.

For this purpose your chosen charity is Rotary Club of Romsey Test. We collect all the money for the walk and the distribute it to all the charities on your behalf. When you register you are asked on the form who you would like you money to go to.
This way we can keep a track of exactly how much the event raises each year.
Step #4 - How much does it cost!
We do run an EARLY BIRD offer every year, which usually finishes around early July. Check out our page for this years cut off date.
