On Saturday 29th August I will be running the length of Chesterfield Canal, twice. That's a total of 92 miles. I'll start from Chesterfield, run through the night to the River Trent at West Stockwith and back to Chesterfield within 24 hrs. Weather permitting I'll be wearing my Scooby Doo suit.
I am doing this to raise awareness and vital funds for the trust and it's 2027 restoration appeal.
The canal has been an important resource for people to use during the coronavirus pandemic. Let's help to complete the canal’s restoration by its 250th Anniversary
The Chesterfield Canal was completed in 1777. The first boat from West Stockwith arrived in Chesterfield on 4th June. The trust is aiming to complete the last nine miles of restoration by 2027 which is the 250th Anniversary of that great event.
All the money donated will go directly towards the costs of restoration of the canal so many more people can enjoy its beauty.
