The registration site for the 2022 Saffery Rotary Walk opened this morning welcoming those who want to benefit from heavily discounted ‘Early bird’ registration fees.
Guernsey’s Round Island Walk returns to the diary on 11th June 2022 following its remarkable comeback last year which broke all records in terms of numbers enrolling and funds raised. Under the banner “Guernsey Walking Together” the Island came together to shake off the Covid-blues and get out to enjoy the wonderful coastline of Guernsey. This year organisers are additionally looking forward to welcoming back walkers from beyond Guernsey’s shores.
Chairman of the walk Committee said, “This event is not only about raising money for our charity sector but also welcoming new and returning walkers from Jersey, Isle of Man, the UK and beyond. The hospitability we offer and the opportunity to experience our incredible coastline has traditionally attracted visitors in their hundreds. We are so sorry to have missed them over the past two years. Let’s make 2022 truly a year to remember as our ‘Welcome Back’ year!”.
If you are a regular walker or a captain wishing to register a relay team under our favourable Early Bird registration fees simply follow this to navigate your way to our registration pages. If you have never been involved before and want to be convinced at the delight of being part of Guernsey’s largest community fund-raising event, do take a look at the brief video that can be found on the home page of this site.
We will be running our slimmed-down Family Walk again this year and news about that will follow in the Spring.
The serious bit … We haven’t seen the last of Covid-19 and all its variants. But Guernsey was one if the least affected jurisdictions at the height of the pandemic. So to help overseas walkers to register with confidence, you do so in the knowledge that if your travel arrangements are Covid-restricted your full registration fee will be refunded. There is no better antidote to the pressures of the moment than spending a weekend enjoying all that Guernsey has to offer.
If you are a disappointed overseas walker from 2020 or 2021 and asked for your registration to be rolled forward your name will not have been lost. Please contact us on [email protected] and we will issue you with a free registration token.
We look forward to seeing you on 11 June. Our shirts this year will carry the banner “Keep on Walking”. Do join us and do just that!
