Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our 25th Walkathon, planned for mid May 2020.
In order to reduce the risk to the public and our attendees we believe that this is the right thing to do, we are working with Coventry City Council and The War Memorial Park Service to find an alternative date later in the year.
As Lions we have a responsibility to play our part in containing the spread of the virus whilst ensuring the safety of our friends and attendees. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep everyone updated on social media.
If you have paid a registration fee, we will make contact with you via email and offer to either refund you or to hold a place for you at our later event.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause
Join us for our 25th year of the Coventry Walkathon
The Coventry Leofric Lions Walkathon will take place on the Sunday 17th May 2020 at the War Memorial Park and will again provide an opportunity for local Charities and good causes to raise money with Coventry Leofric Lions Club making this possible.
We have moved the date forward a week because of the change in the Bank Holiday and are looking to encourage a greater number to support the charity of their choice.
A walk around the Park is 1 ¾ miles and each walker, depending on their choice, can do one or more laps. There is also a shorter route for those with particular health issues.
Many walkers choose to wear a Fancy Dress and prizes are on offer for Children under 16 and adults plus a team prizes of £100 for the best dressed charity group of over 10 people and for the Charity with the largest number of walkers on the day.
You are welcome to bring your dog but please remember to bring a bag to clean up any mess!
It is our ambition to arrange a day of fun supported by Vic Minett from BBC CWR and with entertainment provided by the “Crew Girls” dance group and the “Step up Singers” before the start.
Over the last 24 years £300,000 has been raised by local charities and it will be great to see them benefit again directly with their supporters involvement on the day.
Come join us on the 17th of May 2020, and help make a difference to worth causes across the City
