A Virtual Leukaemia Busters Purbeck Odyssey Walk



What is the Virtual Leukaemia Busters Purbeck Odyssey Walk?

For twenty-one years our Purbeck walks have been highly popular with everyone and a resounding success for Leukaemia Busters. Alas this year because of coronavirus the event had to be shelved.  We are therefore proposing a virtual Purbeck Odyssey walk that you can participate in wherever you are and in whatever way you like. Walk the same walks as we organized in the past 2, 7, 12, 19 and 26 miles or whatever distance you chose either in your home territory or any other place of your choosing. That place might include Purbeck itself or any other favourite beauty spot in the country.

Leukaemia Busters Purbeck Odyssey is your chance to get you out in the fresh air and enjoy the county’s most breathtaking countryside along the Purbeck Ridge, wherever you live and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself. It’s your walk, your way.

Simply choose your challenge, complete it on June 25-26 or another date of your choice and support our life-saving research.

Choose your challenge

Choose from one of 6 challenges for all ages and abilities, which you can do on a route of your choice, wherever you are in the world, on 29 or 30 August or whenever is most convenient for you.
