What you need to know before you go
In the programme a grade is assigned to each walk reflecting the level of difficulty and the level of fitness required, according to the following general guide:
- C Walks of the least difficulty, not more than 10 miles distance OR 1000 feet ascent. C+ indicates more challenging gradient or terrain.
- B Walks more difficult than C+ and not exceeding 15 miles distance OR 1500 feet ascent. B+ indicates particular challenges due to gradient or terrain.
- A Walks more difficult than B+ and not exceeding 18 miles distance OR 3000 feet ascent. A+ indicates greater distance or ascent, or particular challenges due to gradient or terrain.
‘C’ walks are not short or half day ‘A’ or ‘B’ walks. They are provided so that the club can meet its objective of catering for all ages and walking strengths. The pace is accordingly leisurely with ample stops. Weather permitting, there will be opportunity for us all to enjoy the countryside in depth.
‘A’ and ‘B’ walks will still provide opportunities for stops, photography, etc. but require a higher level of fitness. Members are asked to ensure that they are fit for all walks they intend to undertake. It is recommended that before attempting A walks several B walks should be done to confirm fitness.
