1500 Kilometres Walked for Life!
Record‐breaking numbers and record‐breaking temperatures marked CSF‐Languedoc’s 8th Walk for Life held on Sunday, 23rd September.
Over 200 participants (split roughly 50/50 between the 5km and 10km walks) walked a total of 1500km at this year’s event – a figure made all the more impressive by the fact that they did it in scorching temperatures that ran to well over 30 degrees towards the end of the morning. According to Meteo France, it was the hottest autumn day on record for this time of year!
Our generous hosts at Domaine de la Clapière once again made their beautiful vineyards and premises available to us, and we enjoyed stunning scenery and blue skies throughout the walks, finishing at the Domaine for a well‐earned lunch provided by CC Fish & Chips and Chillis & Spice, washed down with Clapière’s excellent wines.
As well as donations and sponsorship money for the walks themselves, funds were raised from book, coffee and cake sales. Many thanks to all our supporters and to the hard‐working Walk for Life organiser.
