Our Moonlight Ribbon walk is a moonlit 5k route around the stunning Raby Castle. The walk will begin in the Walled Gardens of Raby Castle and will take you past the beautiful grounds, up through the woods, past home farm, and back past the ponds. The route is suitable for all ages, but please be aware it does include ¼ mile of gravelled ground, before continuing on path ways. Dogs are more than welcome, but must be kept on leads and all times, and all waste must be cleaned up. The route will be marshalled, and sign posted the whole way around.
You will receive your ribbon once you have registered, we will be sending out a little information pack with everything you need to know before, during and after the event. Your ribbon will be blue. We encourage everyone to write a message to a loved one on the ribbon, whether this be in memory of, or just someone who means a lot to you. The ribbon can be written on with permanent maker (which works best).
