After the walk on 4th February over half of the seats have been booked so this one will be popular. Please dook early to avoid disappointment.

April 15th 2018 Eighteenth Valley and Views from Wilbarston Village Hall

The eighteenth Valley and Views will be held on Sunday 15th April 2018.  There will again be a three distance event offering routes of approximately 11km, 26km and 42km - the latter being a true marathon distance for the purists. All walks will follow footpaths and bridleways with occasional short distances on quiet country roads.  A full route description will be provided for each route.  The walks follow the Welland Valley with some great views across Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.  Entrants come from all over Britain and the continent and there is always a good friendly atmosphere at the Village Hall which has full facilities.  An all day breakfast is available for a small charge.

There are also on-route check points which will provide light refreshments free of charge.

Starting times, distances and entry fees are available on the downloadable pre-registration form which, to save time on the day can also be printed, completed and given to us on or before the event.

If you prefer you may enter on the day – just turn up, register, collect a route description and go.  Remember there is no such thing as bad weather, just unsuitable clothing.  If the weather is sunny, remember the hat, drink and sunscreen.  If it is wet bring the waterproofs and umbrella!  Wear suitable shoes, trainers or boots.  Dogs are welcome, but please remember to keep them under control and on a lead when walking through the countryside, particularly amongst livestock.

The routes are all on OS Landranger (1:50k) map 141.  If you use OS Explorer (1:25k) maps you will need 233, 234 and 224.  As with all of our regular walks you will be provided with written route instructions at check in and detailed route maps will also be displayed around the hall.
