SJP Big Walk 2016 – The Jurassic Coast

This weekend, 7-8 May 2016, WILSAR marshalled St James’s Place Foundation’s annual Big Walk. This year’s event saw 160 walkers making their way along 32 miles of the Dorset Jurassic Coast from Weymouth to Durlston Head over 2 days. The weather was lovely, the views breathtaking, the climbs challenging and the descents even more so!

WILSAR have been assisting SJP Foundation with organising and marshalling the Big Walk for the last four years. Previous locations have been The Lake District, Wiltshire’s White Horse Trail and Hadrian’s Wall. The Foundation and SJP staff raise hundreds of thousands of pounds each year for charities and WILSAR are proud to be a part of this by supporting them.
