Route Map


What is a Level 2.0 Trekking Challenge Like?

For this type of challenge - you can expect either distance (up to 12 or 15 miles), or altitude gain - around 700m. But not both! If you climb, then the distance will be less, if you cover the distance, then the altitude gain will be little. Typically conditions underfoot will be good - although there are exceptions to this. If you encounter rough conditions underfoot, then the distance / altitude will be reduced. These events would suit someone of good all round fitness, who takes exercise regularly - without necessarily being of high fitness.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 2.0 ‘Trek’?

You must be active and with moderate fitness level. You should be taking regular exercise, consisting of regular walks and possibly other sports (swimming / football etc.) You should be comfortable in undertaking long country walks of up to 7 hours or 15 miles in the lowland English countryside.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

You should be used to walking reasonable distances each day to contemplate this trek. It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.
