Welcome to Walk The Wye 2020

P1000628Walk The Wye is an annual Rotary Club sponsored walk, along the banks of the River Wye, and  organised by the Rotary clubs of Monmouth, Chepstow and Ross on Wye.


The next Walk The Wye event has been rescheduled  to take place on Sunday 27th September 2020.

The format for the event will be similar to the 2019 event. There will be the usual 6 walks of varying lengths to choose from along the banks of the River Wye, plus a 7th  walk which climbs to several high vantage points, giving glorious views down into the Wye Valley. All walks start and finish at Monmouth.

Choose a walk. Invite your friends to join you, and have a great day out in the beautiful Wye valley, whilst raising money for breast cancer research.

The following pages give full details about the event, but if you would like any further information about “Walk The Wye” please send an email to :- monmouthrotaryclub@gmail.com

We all know somebody who has been touched by breast cancer; either directly or through a relative or friend or work colleague. Progress is being made but much more research is needed in order to find a cure for this dreadful disease. Please help us raise funds to further the research.

The 2020 Walk The Wye event will be the twelveth consecutive year that it has been organised, raising money for breast cancer research, and other charities supported by the Rotary Clubs of Monmouth, Ross on Wye and Chepstow. (75% of the total raised will go to the Velindre Cancer Centre at Cardiff and 25% to other charitable causes supported by the Rotary clubs of Monmouth, Chepstow and Ross on Wye)

The 2019 Walk The Wye event took place on Sunday May 12th 2019. It was a great success with 378 walkers taking part. Almost £13,000 was raised for the Velindre breast cancer research team and Rotary. This takes the total raised for breast cancer research, over 11 years, by the “Walk The Wye” event to almost £110,000.  We are hoping to take the total to over £120,000 in 2020.
