April 24th 2022 Twentieth Annual Valley and Views Event

After a couple of years delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic we will be offering our three distance annual special event for the twentieth time, the "Valley & Views". This event, open to members and non-members, includes a true marathon as well as shorter distances. This event, as before, will be based from Wilbarston Village Hall LE16 8QE and will take place on Sunday 24th April. Routes of approximately 42 kms, 26 kms and 12 kms are offered and walkers and runners join us from all over the country as well as from abroad. As this will be the 20th Valley & Views we hope you will all come along to enjoy the walks which we expect will be via Hallaton. Free refreshments and lots of cake (we do not plan to run out of cake as everybody loves it, for good re-fuelling) etc. will be provided at each checkpoint on the 42km and 26km routes. Cooked breakfasts and hot sandwiches will be available all day at the village hall for you to enjoy at the start or finish of your walk at a reasonable price. Also this year the licensed bar in the hall will be open from around 12.30. For the first time "On-line" early booking can be made via SiEntries via this link or you can download, print and post your entry form from here
