Pull on your walking boots, have fun and get fit, while raising money for Marie Curie

If you love walking and want to raise funds for a worthwhile charity, why not join a host of other hikers on The Cambrian Path this summer. 

Cambrian Training Company are inviting individuals, families, businesses, organisations and sports clubs to cover the 291-mile distance of the Cambrian Way Path in 60 days from 1st August.

Everyone who registers can do so alone or by splitting the distance as a team or with family and friends and all proceeds will go to Marie Curie. Children can also sign up, but must be accompanied by a participating adult, and if you prefer to go a little quicker, runners are also welcome. 

The training company’s initial idea of involving staff, apprentices and businesses they work with has now grown to include anyone who'd like to take part to help support this much-loved charity.

The Cambrian Way Path covers some of the most beautiful landscape in Wales, from Cardiff to Conwy, crossing the Cambrian Mountains.

“The Cambrian Way Path walk or run is open to anyone who'd like to take part to improve their fitness, health or mental wellbeing,” says Katy Godsell, Cambrian Training’s marketing manager.

“The more miles we walk or run, the more money we will raise for Marie Curie, which touches the lives of so many people and needs public support more than ever.”

Marie Curie, which has seen fundraising severely hit by the pandemic, provides frontline nursing and hospice care, as well as a free support line.

Those taking part in the walk or run can either secure sponsorship and record the miles they walk on a tracking sheet, or donate to the fundraising page: Training Company is also asking all those who take part to share their photos on social media at or
