The Rotary clubs of Newtown, Llanidloes and Machynlleth congratulate all who took part in this year's walk. In all, 155 people reached the finish at the Anchor. Well done.
The walk this year was held under nearly ideal conditions and all were in before 9.00 pm - a remarkable effort.
Every year, some of the walkers collect sponsorship; this year they will be able to contribute £25,000 to their favourite good causes - a brilliant effort; well done to all.
The provisional date for next year's walk is Saturday June 24. Watch this space.
The full walk is 42 miles, but it is possible to partake in shorter sections – 26, 16 or 6 miles. The shorter section is ideal for children and families.
The full walk starts at Glandyfi, just south of Machynlleth. Other sections start at Staylittle, Llandinam or the Devils Elbow. Transport is provided from Newtown to the start points. The walk ends at the Anchor, just over the border into Shropshire. Transport back to Newtown is available from the Anchor.
Meals are provided during the day and water is available at all the checkpoints.
This is an ideal opportunity to enjoy the magnificent scenery of mid-Wales, to get fit or to raise money for your favourite charities.
We look forward to seeing you in June 27
