The 26 mile trek from Winchester to Salisbury has a new finish line in our city this year.

The walk, which raised funds for Naomi House and Jacksplace will take place between the two cathedral cities will take place on June 2nd,

It'll start at Winchester Cathedral heading across open countryside taking in the villages of King's Somborne, Houghton, Broughton, Winterslow and Pitton, before passing close to the site of Clarendon Palace on the approach to Salisbury.

It traditionally ends in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral, this year due to another event taking place there organisers have had to find a new finish line, that means walkers will finish in the middle of the city's Market Square.

For those wishing to do a shorter walk there's a 12 mile route starting in the Hampshire village of Broughton.

The event  is one of the charity's biggest fundraisers.

Last year more than 1,000 people took part, raising over £100,000.

More than 1,000 took part in last year's Clarendon Way Walk.

Events Fundraiser, Charlotte Patrick, said:

"The Clarendon Way Walk continues to grow and we are expecting this year to be the biggest and best yet. Walkers can expect beautiful scenery, great comradeship and fabulous weather alongside unrivalled support and organisation.

We hope the event will raise enough money to fund more than 7,000 hours of high quality nursing care, which is so desperately needed by local children, young adults and their families. It's a challenging but enjoyable event, and a great way to get fit and explore some of Hampshire and Wiltshire's most beautiful countryside."
