December 8th 2019 Coach Trip

The last of our quarterly coach trips this year will take place on 8th December and as is customary for this event will finish in Central London. The list will open at the walk desk on 27th October (at the Vane Arms Sudborough) after which bookings can be made via the website, facebook page or directly by contacting John and Alison Percival or of course at any walk desk.

December 13th 2019 Social Evening

We will be running a Christmas social event on Friday 13th December at the Wellingborough Old Grammarians headquarters in Oxford Street and this will take the form of a quiz, buffet and raffle along with the chance to chat to fellow walkers in a social environment. Bookings can be made at any walk desk or via this website or our Facebook page as usual and we ask for payment at the time of booking. Costs are £6 per member, £7 per non-member and this cost will include a buffet. The event will commence at 19.30 and we hope to see many of you there.

April 26th 2020 Twentieth Valley and Views Event

As usual we will be running our three distance Special Event, the "Valley & Views", which includes a true marathon as well as shorter distances. It will take place on 26th April and as usual will be based from Wilbarston Village Hall. Routes of 42 kms, 26 kms and 11 kms are offered and runners as well as walkers come from all over the country and even from abroad. The 2020 event will mark the 20th Valley & Views which has always been popular, so we hope you will all come along to enjoy the day as we will try to make it a bit special this year. 

Free refreshments will be offered at each checkpoint on the long and middle distance routes (there are no checkpoints on the short route) and this year we will provide lots more cake (we do not plan to run out of cake as everybody loves it, for good re-fuelling) as well as other items of food and drink . As usual cooked breakfasts as well as tea and coffee will be available all day at the village hall at a reasonable price, and this year the licensed bar will also be open from mid-day.

Registration can be made on the day, but to save yourself time we advise you to pre-register by downloading printing and completing the form from here and sending it with your entry fee to Tony Bridgman. We are investigating the possibility of on line registration and payment but this is not yet available.
