We are setting off from the Old Town Hall in Carlisle City Centre and following an amazing route, taking in the city's historical landmarks & memorials...with a few special surprises on the way!

Come along on your own, with younger or older family members! Dogs are welcome too!

Goody bags for all entrants too...prizes for winners in each category as well as for those who finish last!

It'll be a great day out for everyone. Help us to commemorate the memory of the fallen & help us to support the Armed Forces community - serving men & women, veterans & their families.
