"Don't leave it too late," - that's the message from organisers of a walk which spans the breadth of the country, due to get underway later this month.

Entries for this year's Rotary Across Wales Walk close on June 11, with more than 220 people already signed up for the event, with most people attempting the full 42 miles.

That list includes three relay teams and a dozen people who are planning to run the distance.

One of the organisers, Newtown Rotarian Joihn Evans, says: "Apart from the good company, the great scenery and the chance to get fit this is your chance to raise money for your favourite good cause.

"We hope to be donating to AED – a charity dedicated to helping communities gain access to Automated External Defibrilators.

"Late entries cause safety problems for the organisers, so please get yours in on time.

"The Rotarian volunteers look forward to seeing you on Saturday, June 22."

The event is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Llanidloes, Machynlleth and Newtown with meal stops and checkpoints along the way.
