Step into Spring with the St Michael’s big Spring Walk

On Sunday 17th March.

About the event

This time, we return to Fownhope – with a new choice of routes, each taking in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

Choose from a 5K11K or 16K walk. All are circular, leading you back to Fownhope Recreation Ground where you’ll be able enjoy a performance from the Paws For Thought dog display team.

Entry to the Big Spring Walk is free for all those pre-registering before noon on Thursday 14th March. 
So it is through sponsorship that you can make a real difference to the lives of those we support every year. So please ask your friends and family to support you and sponsor you! If you raise over £15, you’ll get a Big Spring Walk Medal.

Register on-the-day for a £5 donation. 

Choose your distance

All routes are signposted and marshalled. Whatever the distance you choose, we would love you to get sponsored and help St Michael’s continue to care for families in our community who are experiencing terminal illness.


Enjoy a gentle walk across the Herefordshire countryside on this route. Ideal for everyone.


Push yourself on this longer route and take in more sights from across the countryside. Ideal for those looking for a big walk.


The ultimate challenge! Enjoy a real yomp across the rolling countryside and push yourself. Ideal for experienced walkers.
