This is part of a nationwide virtual challenge. We are aiming for 11kms for the 11th of the 11th.
To be part of the virtual challenge you would need to register with the British Legion and make your own payment and donation through this link. You are nt obliged to do this. We shall be making a small donation from today's walk direct to the Poppy Appeal, but without gifts or publicity.
We shall stop for a coffee at the Fox and Hounds after.

This session is aimed at everyone but without stopping for 120 minutes- we ask that you keep the community spirit. For those wishing to stride out we operate the "the whistle and loop back" fun strategy. It helps maintain our sense of community but addresses the different needs.

It is advisable to wear a bum bag with a water bottle or hydration pack. Do bring a high energy snack to have on the hoof or as soon as we finish.

We respect people`s busy agendas and do like to start promptly. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your class and be ready to start on time. Please do not be offended if we do not wait whilst you get yourself sorted. We do a warm up close by so please do catch up.

Walk speed guide:

Gentle stroll - Gear 1 - Nice pace that you can do for extended periods. 2-2.5mph (these generally are our Well Being walks)
Easy walk -Gear 2 - Faster pace gained through technique. Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk with occasional photo stops. 2.5mph (Most of our 1 hour adventure walks)
Moderate walk - Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery. Very little stopping. 2.5mph-3mph+ (these are generally our Step up and Stride out Workout walks and longer Adventure walks)
Strenuous walk - gear 3/4 and Power Stride workout walks and Challenge training.

Booking online in advance is essential. This is to keep you safe and minimise the risks for these exciting walks.

You are asked to contact Janine by phone, leaving a voicemail or sending an sms text to 07792 550191, if you are likely to be delayed as we do start classes promptly.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 24 hours’ notice.
