15th Annual Sponsored Walk
When: Saturday 24th February, 2018 from 10:30 am
Location: Hotel Sercotel La Selva.
This is the Freesia Group’s 15th annual sponsored walk to raise money for the cancer charities we support here in Spain.
This year our very own Kay Jager has organised a fantastic day out walking and trekking along countryside around the Selva del Camp area. This 15th Annual Sponsored Walk event will be held on 24th February starting at 10:30am from the Hotel Sercotel in La Selva del Camp. The hotel is situated to the north of the town along the TP-7013 road.
This pre-planned walk starts at 10:30am and takes you along the “Ruta del Rec” to see some fantastic views of the surrounding country side before bringing you back down to the Hotel Sercotel ready for lunch and a chance to rest those tired and weary legs.
The estimated distance covered will be about 8.5km with a maximum elevation of about 400m at the very beginning of the walk but the rest is very flat and easy to do.
Thanks to La Selva del Camp Ayuntamiento, the walk along the Ruta del Rec is well signposted and prepared with lovely little rope bridges alongside a small river as you pass through the countryside.
This a fully organised Freesia Event and is open to everyone. Those wishing to participate can get sponsored or just pay 5 euro on the day to take part. Don’t forget that all the money raised goes to our supported cancer charities.
The walk finishes back at the town of La Selva del Camp for lunch at the hotel. The Hotel Sercotel has offered us at a specially reduced price of 15 euros, for a 3 course menu which includes wine, water, gaseosa, bread and coffee all included in the price.
It will be a great day out for all those who enjoy walking, trekking and sports in general as well as raising well need funds for our cancer supporting charities. So get there early to warm-up and enjoy the atmosphere before the long walk ahead.
