Welcome to the Walking: LONG WALK 10+ kms. Group

Group Coordinators





There are currently no events scheduled for this group

Venue: Details notified seven to 10 days in advance.
Event: every fourth Friday of the month - except July & August
This group is open to all U3A members. We walk in many locations in this beautiful countryside. Some walks are coastal, some more rural and some in the nearby mountains. The walks are between 10 and 15 km lasting up to  4 hours depending on the length of the walk. Sometimes the walks are on flat surfaces others are combinations of medium to steep hills. Therefore, good physical condition, good walking boots or shoes are essential.
We usually have a limit of 25 persons on a walk. If the walk is full your name will be put on the waiting list. Priority is given to members of the group but if the limit has not been reached by closing date, family members or friends are welcome to join. We end our walks with a lunch arranged by the walk organiser. This is a good way of getting to know our fellow-walkers and reward ourselves for all our hard work. The lunch is optional.
Members of the group are kindly requested to organise a walk. We really encourage those that have never led a walk before to try. Walks can be very different at different times of year, or simply do them round the other way. I will gladly make suggestions and help to recce a walk with organisers.

Please see the chart below for the programme for the year.
