Our Route 

More

Every step you take will help us to virtually travel across Africa between six country checkpoints. Our start line begins at our UK office in Bath and together with other supporters, you will journey across Africa to reach the highlands of Ethiopia, before travelling down through the continent to finish in the grasslands of Zambia.

With every footstep and mile logged, you’ll be helping to take us one step further to reach our collective goal of 6,350 miles – that’s an incredible 12.7 million footprints for good!

As we reach each checkpoint, you’ll be sent an inspirational story from a family living on the front line of the climate crisis to keep you motivated to reach your goal distance – straight to your inbox!

Start Line - Send a Cow, Bath, UK

We start our journey at the Send a Cow UK office, located just outside of Bath. Bath is a significant place to start our relay; this was where the charity originally began back in 1988 after a group of dairy farmers decided to act to fight injustice in rural Uganda. You can find out more about the inspiring story of our founding farmers here.
