Walk the Cransley Way

Cransley Hospice is inviting everyone to join them for a fabulous NEW adventure walk, along The Cransley Way between the 1st and 30th April.

Cransley Steps Challenge

The 100-mile virtual route is around the same distance walked by a Cransley Hospice nurse during a month. Participants will be able to track their distance along the path, posting a “Cransley Way postcard” from each point via their social channels to let people know that they have reached the next milestone and as a reminder of why they are doing it.

Whether walking, running or whizzing on two wheels, The Cransley Way winds its way to the summit of Snowdon (9 Miles), along the historic Hadrian’s Wall (25 miles), to trek the Brecon’s (62 miles) and through the rolling countryside of Northamptonshire (50 Miles). Each point equating back to the number of days or weeks that a nurse would take to cover the same distance.


Getting outside and getting daily exercise is good for both our physical and our mental wellbeing. But it’s not always easy. The nights are still long and it’s chilly but a daily walk is just what we need to put the spring back in our step! By April spring will be blossoming so whether you walk alone or as a household, jog or do a few laps of the garden, there couldn’t be a better time to dust of the trainers, to get out, get active and walk The Cransley Way from wherever you are!


The Cransley Hospice team have been working throughout the pandemic, adapting to the challenges, but still providing the specialist end of life care for patients and supporting their families at one of the most difficult times.


Registration is £10 for individuals or £20 for a household (up to 6 people) and Cransley Hospice Trust is hoping that people will aim to raise £120 or more which is the average cost of a nurses’ day shift.  Participants can set their own goals and register their places via the Cransley Hospice website:


Once registered participants will receive a special fundraising pack with their downloadable postcards so that they can let everyone know how well you’re doing, and how far they have got along the Cransley Way and why they’re doing it. Everyone completing their challenge will receive a special celebratory Cransley Hospice trophy.


Anyone wishing to use the Cransley Way as a warm up for something bigger, or looking for an adventure in 2021 can find out more about the Cransley Challenge Event programme via the website:
