• 2022 Randonnee

    The 2022 Randonnee took place on Sunday 1st May. We had 2500 participants register this year and we'd like to thank each of them for their generous donations both online and at the checkpoints. It's only through the donations and badge sales that we can maintain the Randonnee in its current form and more importantly support local charities. We will publish in due course the charities and amounts we have donated. We’d also like to thank the local community for their support, Businesses, Schools and Villages that let us use their premises and the Schools for providing the feed stations that are so enjoyed by the participants - thank you all - see you next year…. The Randonnee Team.
