On Walk Day
How Do I Find The Event?
The Walk is in the private woods of the Beaulieu Estate and free parking is provided in one of the National Motor Museum car parks (No.3 or No.4 – on the left as you enter)
Signs inside the Motor Museum entrance will direct you to the designated car park for the Rotary Event.
All participants must arrive at the designated car park, whether by vehicle, bicycle or on foot, to then be directed to the Registration Area by the Marshals – a walk of some 500 metres across Hides Field.
If you are unable to make this walk please speak to a Marshal and you will be directed to a more appropriate car park.
Beaulieu is situated in the south of England, in the New Forest between Bournemouth and Southampton, with easy access from London and the Home Counties.
By road – follow signs for the National Motor Museum Beaulieu.
From the M27, exit at junction 2 and follow the signs for Fawley A326; after approximately five miles follow the brown and white tourist signs towards Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum.
Sat Nav postcode is SO42 7ZN but please follow the brown signage to the National Motor Museum when in the vicinity.
A map is provided at the foot of the page.
Marshalls will be on hand to assist with parking and direct you to the Registration Area.
All walkers must check in at the Walk Registration Desk before starting the Walk.
Please remember to bring your Walker Sponsorship sheet, or a copy, as we will use it whilst you are on the walk to assist with the route control. This is to ensure we are aware of exactly who is walking on the route and when they have finished.
Registrations and payments can be done on the day but, as this slows down proceedings, we would much prefer that registrations are made in advance. There is always the possibility that with the limit in numbers there may not be an allocation for late registrations.
Ensure you get a copy of the Welcome leaflet from Reception as this contains vital information for use on the day.
Treasure Trail quiz sheets are also available at Reception - remember to bring a pen or pencil along.
Toilets are at the Tree House Study Centre and are clearly sign-posted.
Appropriate footwear and clothing are important particularly in inclement weather. The trails on the Walk are similar to those found in the New Forest and can become soft and slippery in bad weather and it is wise to consider which routes should be attempted in such conditions. It may be advisable to carry some water. Advice on conditions is available at Reception.
First Aid and Emergency Procedures
The route is marshalled by Rotarians and other volunteers who will be ready to assist and deal with any difficulties should they arise. In the unlikely event of a medical problem please contact any marshal who will organise appropriate assistance. Medical and First Aid facilities are located at Reception, but assistance can be given quickly if needed on the Walk route. Emergency telephone numbers are given on the Welcome leaflet.
