Steady walks

Get Doncaster Walking 2016 is here again celebrating its 10th anniversary of delivering ‘healthy walks’ to encourage Doncaster residents to get more active out in their local community, appreciate Doncaster’s large open green spaces and have some fun.

As a celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are honoured and pleased to announce that the first walk of our program on the 16th January will be a sponsored walk at Doncaster Lakeside led by Doncaster’s Paratrooper, L/Cpl Ben Parkinson MBE. The walk will be delivered in partnership with Club Doncaster Foundation and all proceeds raised on the day will be donated to Ben’s charity, Pilgrim Bandits. The day will also include reduced price match day tickets for all participants to the Doncaster Rovers Vs Gillingham fixture, football and cycling activities available for all and Ben being the match day mascot to lead the players out onto the pitch.

Please download the timetable below for all the walks taking place from now until the end of May 2016.
