Walks programme for Jan-June 2021.

This is work in progress because the Covid regulations keep changing and this has a huge impact on what we can do.

Normally, the programme is a four week cycle with walks every Sunday and occasionally a weekend away. Typically, we have four grades of walk as follows:

  • Week 1 – Easy Walk – nice and easy as the name suggests – about 2 hours
  • Week 2 – Intermediate Walk – mixed terrain with some road and some off-road – about 3 hours
  • Week 3 – Road Walk – generally all on the road – 3-4 hours depending on location and time of year
  • Week 4 – Hill Walk – largely off-road, rough ground – 3-5 hours depending on route and weather etc.
  • Week 5 – Easy Walk etc etc

When things return to normal we will draw up a programme for the current six months of the year.
