The money goes to our Rotary charities as attached for the previous year Copy of Donations 2015-2016.pdf
Yes bacon baps and hot drinks will be available at a reasonable cost!
Yes there are signs and marshals along the entire route.
Each walker is issued with a white & yellow tag at the Crosfield Hall starting point, the yellow tag is handed to the transport marshal, and the white tag MUST be attached to your clothing with the cable tie provided, and is collected at the finish and married to each yellow tag, so we know everyone is accounted for!
No because there are 5 distances to choose from, so walkers are spread out, but you are likely to be walking in "company" which is fun!
No there are five distances to choose from see "About the Event" on the web site for details, so you choose which distance you want to walk when you register.
No we only expect you to pay in what you raised (although we suggest a minimum of £50.00)
Transport is provided for each walk distance from the Crosfield Hall, Romsey.
No registration fees cover the fixed costs of the walk which cannot be reduced if walkers drop out after registration.
You can email the walk registrar by clicking on the "contact" button on the home page.
Photographs are approved by the web administrator to make sure they are "suitable" so there may be a delay!
Yes - but we would expect you to pay the registration fee and make at least the minimum donation of £50.00
Yes - please email the Registrar accordingly.
How many people walked this year; how much was raised, which charities benefitted - and when is the next walk?
Answers to these and other questions and updates will appear on our website www.walkthetestway.org.uk
Yes, but remember there are stiles to be negotiated and you should ensure you have sufficient support to get over these, also, some stretches will be muddy and uneven.
Yes - we consolidate payments from all walkers both from JustGiving and other methods, and send the total sponsorship raised after deducting the agreed 20% for Rotary charity work when JustGiving has been selected, or 25% when other methods of sponsorship payment are selected.
We will do our best, but its not guaranteed.
Regretfully none of it is suitable for wheelchair use. In places encroaching vegetation makes the path narrow and only suitable for single file walking, in addition there are stiles; kissing gates; and narrow boardwalks over boggy ground and uneven farmland.
Leave the Memorial Park through the main gates, turn right over the bridge, follow the road up to and through the arch at the top, in to the town Market Place.
Cross the Market Place and walk to the left of the Nat West Bank into the main shopping street (The Hundred).
Take a footpath along the right hand side of Boots Chemist to the bus station.
Leave the bus station by the access road, turn left then immediately right at the crossing to the Crosfield Hall.
Is it possible to start the Walk at my chosen start point without checking in at Romsey and being bussed to the start point?
No - you must check in at the Crosfield Hall, Romsey for insurance purposes.
Yes, the Ordnance Survey Explorer Map sheet number 131 for Romsey, Andover and the Test Valley covers the entire route on a double sided map at a scale of 2.5 inches to the mile (1:25000).
We are dependant on walkers sending in their sponsorship quickly before we can apply for Gift Aid and distribute the total to the charities. We plan to complete this by January at the latest and if we are able, we will send out interim payments in December.
I am an adult walking with a child under 14 or a vulnerable adult. I am not raising sponsorship myself. Do I need to register for the Walk if the person I accompany does so.
Yes - otherwise you will not be included in the transport planning so will not have a place reserved on the bus which may be full. Registration fees cover transport costs, insurance and paramedic cover amongst others.
Yes - please email the registrar with their details and the name of the person who has dropped out.
Probably, but transport for some distances gets full up. Check with the Registrar by email.
Yes, but label it clearly with your name.
We would prefer not. Organising and ensuring the security of over 700 walkers makes this impractical. If extreme circumstances prevent registration on line, we will accept walkers on the day but they are expected to make a minumum donation of £50.
Please let us know the details and we will let you know if it is acceptable.
Sorry No - the registration fee covers transport and insurance costs, but there is an Early Bird discounted registration fee.
Yes, but they must be kept on a short lead as the route will take you through livestock in some places. Dogs will be allowed on buses provided they are well behaved and kept off the seats.
All cheques (registration fees, donations and sponsorship monies) should be made payable to "Rotary Club of Romsey Test Trust Fund" and sent to The Registrar, Walk the Test Way, PO Box 335, Romsey, Hampshire SO51 1BP.
No, since the Test Way passes through farm fields. Where possible we try to ensure the marshals have the necessary experience to deal with such situations.
Yes. Please enclose a copy of the sponsorship sheets for the Treasurer to reclaim the Gift Aid.
Hopefully - it depends on the generosity of our supporters!
No - you can walk for any charity or organisation you choose.
Yes - advise the Registrar by email.
No but suggest a target £50.00.
