Additional information

  • We do not carry equipment – we stay at the same campsite every night and are transported to and from start/finish positions each day. We assist adults with transportation.
  • Where you can stay:  the event is at Burnbake Campsite, Corfe Castle – the majority of people camp here. Lodges are available at Burnbake (discounted if you are with TMWF). There are also plenty B&Bs locally. If you are camping we book this for you.
  • The walk is very physically demanding, we strongly suggest you prepare/train before the event.


As the event has grown so has the demand for non-walking volunteers. The roles include: transport support, driving support vehicles throughout each walk day, cooking and preparing food, assisting with camp provisions. Basically we need as many bodies as possible. If you are able to assist please indicate this on the sign up form or if you have any queries please email
