ROYAL Windsor Racecourse is next in line to host the nationwide charity fundraiser ‘Walking The Courses’ tonight (Monday).

Walking The Courses is Richard Farquhar’s epic walk from racecourse to racecourse in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK and Racing Welfare.

On Sunday morning, while most Epsom racegoers were recuperating from the excitement of the Derby, Farquhar,<em> pictured above</em>, returned to the Surrey course to start pounding the pavements all the way to Berkshire.

He will arrive at Windsor’s evening meeting on tonight (Monday).

This next leg of his journey is a 27-mile walk, which has become what feels like “a mere hop, skip and jump” for the brave pedestrian.

Farquhar is walking around the country connecting all 60 racecourses in mainland Britain in a chain. In doing so, he is covering around 3,000 miles on foot.

He is hoping that his marathon efforts will raise a huge £1.4million to be split equally between his chosen charities.

To complete the Epsom to Windsor leg of his journey in style, Farquhar will be walking around the course itself before the evening’s racing commences.

He is hoping to be accompanied by various familiar faces from the racing world and several supporters of the campaign.

Racegoers are also encouraged to partake in the lap of the track and should get in contact via www.walkingthecourses.com if they wish to do so.

Farquhar is now over a quarter of the way through his racecourse pilgrimage, having visited 17 of the 60 courses already, and having covered around 700 of the 3,000 miles between them.

By April 2016, upon arrival back at Newmarket having completed all the racecourse-to-racecourse walks, Farquhar hopes to be nearing his ambitious target of £1.4million.

He also hopes to have involved people from all across the UK in his challenge, and partnered with some of the biggest corporates within the racing industry.

Recently, Farquhar’s fundraising total soared past £100,000.

This first major milestone has put the Walking The Courses team in particularly high spirits as they progress through the third month of the campaign.

The exit bucket collection at Windsor tonight will also be in aid of Walking The Courses and racegoers are encouraged to give generously to two extremely worthy but crucially underfunded beneficiaries.

Executive Director at Royal Windsor Racecourse, Stuart Dorn, comments, ““We’re delighted to welcome Richard and his team, supporting the outstanding effort that they are undertaking to raise significant funds for two great charities.” PICK up a copy of<em> The Observer</em>, out every Friday, for all the latest sports news and action including pictures from Windsor races FOLLOW <em>The Observer</em> on Twitter at @Observer_sports.
