Have your say

INSPIRATIONAL runner Jane Tomlinson’s widower visited Castleton to launch a new Peak District ramble to be staged in his wife’s memory.

The Jane Tomlinson Walk For All Peak District Walk will take place on Sunday, April 29, as part of the Peak District Walking and Outdoor Festival 2012. Thousands of participants are expected to pull on their walking boots for marathon challenges or simply steady strolls with family and friends.

Sara Birkinshaw, events director at Walk For All, said: “Jane Tomlinson herself studied in Sheffield, and the Peak District and particularly the Hope Valley were close to her heart.

“In looking for our next Walk For All, we knew the Peak District would offer our supporters a stunning day out and also enable us to help a host of local South Yorkshire and Peak District charities.”

The Jane Tomlinson Walk For All Peak District Walk is open now for entries - visit Keen walkers can also lace up their boots for The Chesterfield Area Walking Festival from May 12 to 20.
