A FANCY dressed army of walkers will descend on Marlow next month for a sponsored walk led by the town’s very own gold medallist Naomi Riches.

The Jolly Jaunt, which will take place on Saturday, July 12 at 7pm from Higginson Park , will be the fifth sponsored local walk that charities Scannappeal and South Bucks Hospice have held together.

Previously known as the Wycombe Wander, when it moved to Marlow last year it changed to the Marlow Twilight 10 and has now been renamed again.

As well as a new name, the sponsored walk will also have a fancy dress theme and is encouraging locals to get their glad rags on and take part in the walk to raise money for two great causes.

The entry fee is £15 or a team of 8 for £100. The registration fee includes a flashing head band, a BBQ refreshment and drink which is being provided by Marlow Thames Rotary and Asda High Wycombe, as well as a medal when the walk is completed.

Minimum age of entry is 16 and everyone has the choice of a long or short walk, either 8.5 miles or 4 miles.
