The Chieveley 50

Your New Years' Resolution

Join us in a charity challenge in the New Year, raising valuable funds for a hugely worthwhile local cause - Loose Ends - a drop-centre in Newbury serving food to the homeless and vulnerable.

The Challenge

Walk 50 miles in 50 days and raise £50 - either individually, or as part of a group or a family. One contribution, whatever the group size or you can do it by yourself!


Why not? A chance to be part of a great village community initiative plus a bit of fitness and fresh air at the start of the new year.


Join a daily mile walk around the village at either 9am or 6pm. You choose which time works best for you. This will be led to start with but once up and running will just run itself as we are sure there will be someone there who knows the route.

Who can do this?

Anyone over 18, or under if part of a family group. Bring any friends and your neighbours. You don't have to live in Chieveley. Join with others to make your own group.

When does it start and from where?

  • Kick off in 2019 on 2nd January at 9am and then 9am and 6pm each day thereafter
  • Meet at the Church and walk to the recreation centre and around, into Middle Farm Close and back again.
  • Our 50 days will finish on 20th February with a celebratory drink after at The Red Lion.
  • If you miss a day it's not a problem - it's up to you

Sign up and commit

We have a group donations page  which will be used to collect donations.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 2nd January.  We cannot all run a marathon, or cycle the length of the country but this is something WE CAN do. Let's go for it!

Keep in touch

Look out for updates here or on the MyChieveley Facebook page. We'll post a few pictures too once we get going. We can keep an idea on how much money we have raised too. Or if you want to contact us, the organisers, feel free to use our contact details below.
