The Great York Walk 2020

Unfortunately this year's The Great York Walk will be postponed until later in the year, in line with guidance in response to COVID-19 coronavirus in the UK.

We are hard at work creating a brilliant new route around the city and can confirm that there will be three distances for our Great York Walkers to choose from: 10km, 20km and 40km. All proceeds will go towards helping to create a Mentally Fit York to help transform mental health on a local, national and international scale.
