To whom it may concern,
I would just like to introduce myself as the Project Manager for the Macmillan Mighty Hike Thames Path Challenge which will be taking place on Saturday 29th July 2017. The Thames Path Mighty Hike will start at Windsor Racecourse between 8:00am and 10:00am where around 1000 walkers will make their way along the Thames Path 26 mile route to Mill Meadows, Henley. We will see all types of people participate from experienced walkers to first timers, who all share one focus of raising much needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Action Challenge (www.actionchallenge.com), experienced event organisers, are co-ordinating all logistics of the event and we would like to notify all authorities along the route to make you aware of the event should there be any incidents. The entire route has been fully researched using existing public footpaths and participants will be set off in small groups over a period of half an hour. The route will be fully signed and marshalled, with all signage removed at the end of the event. We will also conduct a full pre-event recce of the route to identify any significant risks, which we will log into a risk assessment and apply appropriate safety measures to reduce any potential hazards.
With this in mind, please find an outline of where the event will pass:
