Sign up to Ouse Washes Experience in support of Rotary charities

PUBLISHED: 16:37 18 August 2015 | UPDATED: 16:37 18 August 2015

The Ouse Washes Experience is now only a few weeks away, on September 20.

This event offers everyone the opportunity to raise sponsorship for their favourite charity, as well as having a great day in the amazing Ouse Washes either doing a walk, run or cycle ride.

Cyclists who wish to take part and pre-register are automatically entered into a competition based on them having to make observations en route.

The winner who gets the most questions correct wins a meal for four with wine on the Captains Table, on the river in Ely. Second prize is a Sunday carvery for two at the Golden Lion in Stonea.

Whilst we recommend people do register before the event, it’s possible to take pot luck and simply turn up on the day.

There are a limited number of places for reasons of safety, so we advise anyone who is interested in doing something different should register at

If you do decide just to turn up,on the day, we would be pleased to see you. Entry is free, but we would welcome a donation for our Rotary charities.

Any 10km runners and walkers need to check in from 9.30-10.30am and cyclists from 10-10.30am at Welney Wetland Centre.

For further information, contact me on 01353 749057 or e-mail

We hope to see you there.
