Clan at the castle 71

CLAN Walk at Crathes Castle

Sunday 1st September

Gather your friends, family or colleagues and take on one of our sponsored walks.

With routes ranging from a challenging 15 miles to a family-friendly 3 miles, there's something for everyone.

Sponsored Walks

  • The Banchory Big One at 15 miles – must be aged 12 or over - £15
  • The Milton Mini at 3 miles - £10

To help you raise as much as possible for CLAN Cancer Support, we suggest setting yourself a sponsorship target.

Banchory Big One we suggest £70, which could provide a one to one counselling session and a visit to our trained wig fitting and hair dressing salon

Milton Mini we suggest £50, which could provide breakfast for two days for our guests staying at CLAN Haven

Or why not set yourself a bigger team target and help CLAN to achieve something amazing, like paying for a day?

Family Fun Day

The Event Village will also host our Family Fun Day, open from 10am - 4pm, for walkers and non walkers.

Walkers will receive wristbands in their goodie bags for free access to all the inflatable fun, and non walkers can join in too for just £5. Wristbands for non walkers can be purchased at the Event Village or in advance by calling 01224 647000.
