T20 Walkathon

The Derbyshire Cricket Foundation’s T20 Walkathon is back for 2024 in partnership with the Derbyshire Cricket Over 60’s to complete part of a national campaign – Ron’s Walks

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

Join us on Friday 14th 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 picturesque countryside and Idyllic cricket clubs. Starting off at Derbyshire County Cricket Club’s Incora County Ground, the 20 mile route will take in Parker’s Piece, Darley Abbey, Breadsall, Morley and Stanley.  We will then pass through Locko Park, Spondon, Ockbrook, Borrowash, Elvaston, and then finally back to Derby (the 5-mile route is a shorter version of the route, also taking in Parker’s Piece, Darley Park and starting and finishing at the Incora County Ground). Click on the links below to see the planned routes.

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 2023, 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.
