Aim to raise £150 or more and make a vital difference in helping us find a cure for dementia for all future generations. 


The 5k circular route will begin along Cemetery Road surrounded by the tranquil green spaces the fabulous common offers. 

Explore the enchanting beauty of this wonderful location as you come to the end of your walk and reach the finish line for your well-deserved medal.


The fully signposted route is predominantly on hard standing path and is accessible for both wheelchairs and pushchairs with assistance. The route is mostly flat with one small gradual incline. There will be volunteer marshals along the route and rest stops to support you if needed.

Countdown to our Southampton event

“I couldn’t recommend this walk enough for families young and old! We chatted, played with the kids and enjoyed being out in the fresh air for a change. It’s one of the easiest ways to give back to yourself, your mental health and your physical wellbeing.”

– Hat Hewitt, walked in memory of her mum who had dementia.
