It’s likely to be a case of no pain but plenty of gain for people taking part in the KM Charity Walk later this month.
The challenge event takes place on Sunday, June 23, with a choice of 10 and five-mile routes taking walkers from Grade II listed Georgian mansion Audley Mote House to Leeds Castle and back again.
Walkers will get to explore the beautiful Kent countryside around Maidstone, and enjoy spectacular views of the Downs overlooking the county town.
And once they’re back at Mote Park, they may find it hard to resist the lure of burgers, hot dogs and refreshing drinks – including ice-cool beers for the grown-ups – on sale at a barbecue served up by Audley Mote House.
There will also be delicious treats on offer from the award-winning Simply Ice Cream, whose flavours include the appropriately named Sublime Strawberry, Divine Chocolate, Heavenly Honeycomb and Dreamy Vanilla.
While walkers get some fuel back in their systems, they will also be able to enjoy music courtesy of Kent band the Acoustic Tones.
Many walkers will be taking part for their favourite good causes, there’s no fundraising obligation, and the event provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy a fun day out in the great outdoors with family, friends and great food and music.
The cost of the walk is £15 for adults, with a £1.50 online discount when using the code KMNews19. Children go free.
The walk is supported by headline partner Specsavers and Benenden Hospital Trust, the Kent Wildlife Trust, Maidstone Ramblers, Maidstone Riverside Rotary, the Woodstove Trading Company, the Wellbeing People and Stronger Kent Communities.
