Support Sue Ryder with a Solstice Saunter on the longest day!

5 mile run for Sue Ryder on the longest day in the loveliest of places

The Solstice Saunter is a 5 mile run on the trails of the breath-taking Bolton Abbey Estate, organised by the Airedale Dodgers as a fundraising event for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice. The event, sponsored by the Ecology Building Society will take place on the longest day, Thursday 20th June. Note, because 2024 is a leap year the Solstice is on the 20th not the usual 21st. Whilst most participants come to Bolton Abbey to take part, virtual entry (where participants run a 5 mile route of their own choice on the longest day) is also available and virtual runners are sent their bespoke medal in advance to wear with pride after their Saunter. Every participant is chip timed but whether you run, jog or saunter, everyone will receive a well deserved bespoke Solstice Saunter medal. With the help of our headline sponsor the Ecology Building Society our event is free of single use plastic bottles..  By signing up to this event you (and the people you are signing up) are agreeing to the event terms and conditions which can be found at https://www.sueryder.org/Solsticesaunter STAY IN TOUCH At Sue Ryder, we’d love to keep in touch with you to tell you about our work and how you can support it.
