A YOUTH homeless charity is calling on for Sihillians to put their best foot forward across and enjoy the countryside this summer.
St Basils has unveiled the route for its annual Hike for Homeless event which attracts hundreds of big-hearted walkers every year.
Walkers can choose from a six, 14 or 24 mile route which start and finish at The Queen’s Head pub in Meriden on July 24.
This year’s walk challenge starts at 8am and will follow routes around Warwickshire including the historic hamlet of Berkswell, the windmill in Balsall Common and Kenilworth Castle.
Teams get a map and a guidebook, before navigating their way to the various checkpoints, meaning the Hike for Homeless is more of a challenge than the average charity hike.
Each checkpoint has experienced marshals, a toilet, water and emergency energy bars and a dog bowl for those taking their four-legged friends along.
Teams are made up of three to six people and entrance fees vary according to the length of the walk.
A spokesperson for the charity said: “Even though we will be holding this event post Covid and with full freedom of social interaction we are still going to take precautions.
“A maximum of six people together, distancing in queuing, no physical contact with marshals.”
Participants are also invited to raise further sponsorship if they wish.
