Ramblers are ready to retrace the borders of Maidenhead in October for the town's annual Boundary Walk.
The Rotary Club of Maidenhead is offering a carved wooden trophy to the largest group that takes part in the event, which is now in its 32nd year.
The 13-mile circuit allows walkers to gain sponsorship for their chosen charities, with about £16,000 being raised last year.
This year's walk will take place on Sunday, October 6, starting at 9am from Boulters Lock car park.
You can sign-up for the Boundary Walk in advance or bring a sponsor form with you on the day.
There is a small entry fee of £3 for adults, 50p for children under twelve or £10 for groups of 15 or more if they register before September 17.
The original boundary of Maidenhead was established in 1582 and the Royal Borough installed stones to mark the borders in 1934, although the town has now extended beyond these.
