View Full Version : How far would you want to walk?

If you were invited to attend a sponsored walk with your Cavaliers {and other dogs}, how far would you expect to walk?

I’ve put up a poll, you can only vote once, please vote either for how long you would like to walk for in time, or how many miles.


The plan is to organise a walk, hopefully in June, to raise funds for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Syringomyelia DNA Research Fund. It would probably be held in Suffolk.

A shorter walk, of 1-2 miles would also be arranged at the same venue for those not wanting to complete the longer walk, or perhaps with elderly or poorly Cavaliers.

If you have any suggestions that may help, please post below - it’s the first time the lady concerned has organised this type of event so any help is gratefully received.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Nicki,

Perhaps more could be raised if several walks on the same day were organised in different areas so that more could attend. Suffolk is quite a haul for me but somewhere 2-3 hours away I would attend willingly.

That's an excellent idea - how about it everyone, are you prepared to organise a walk in YOUR area? This could even be an international fundraiser then!!

I wouldn't mind organising one - I think I'd have to base it Yorkshire area as there seeems to be more ove there.

Maybe Grizedale forest? I know its not Yorkshire but the have a file mile walk easily identified :)

I picked 3 miles.. but 3 miles walking at a comfy speed is just under an hour. But had a good speedy pace is 1/2 an hour. I wish Wisconsin had more dog oriented things.

I picked 5 miles, the longer the better so that I'd have a bit of quiet time when I get home :D

Would you be interested in helping to organise a walk for your area??? :D

Perhaps if people do not want to take this on themselves, but would be prepared to help out, you could post on here with area and we could match you up with someone else in the same area....

Nicki,

Could you let me have her email address? When do you think the walk needs to be organised for?

That's ok - it's great that you want to take part. Will keep everyone posted about where walks are planned.
