The new route introduced last year will commence at Templemore Sports Complex, travel along the Buncrana Road progressing onto Riverside Walk at Fort George and then crossing the Peace Bridge to finish at Ebrington Square.

Noel McMonagle, Community Fundraising Manger said “We have extended opening hours and increased registration points today and tomorrow to make it as easy and accessible for everyone wishing to register. This is our largest fundraising event of the year so we really need all the ladies of the North West to come out in force. “I would also like to extend our sincere thanks to Seagate and the Derry Journal once again for their fantastic support.”

The walk will take place on Sunday 7th June 2014 at 1:30pm. It is approximately 5km. Entry is £7. Buses will be available to take ladies from Ebrington over to the start area and then return to Templemore at finish of walk.
