IMCD 25km Walk

Trek Adventure

Come and join IMCD on a fantastic day walk from Sutton to Wimbledon Common and back. The route will be 25km, and will be a team ‘March’. This will be a fun, and sociable group walk led by walking marshals keeping the group together along the route. The route crosses South London—and with a couple of exceptions is very flat and straightforward (with the exception of the distance)! It begins in Sutton and takes in as many green spaces as we can. We will have a pit stop at Wimbledon Tea Rooms before heading back round to Sutton.

What is a Level 3.0 Trekking Challenge Like?

These challenges are either longer, higher, or span several days. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 9 hours trekking. In the case of a multi day trek, you can expect a lower daily duration, but of course the effort is sustained over a longer period. You need to be keen on physical exercise for these events, and to enjoy taking exercise, and do it regularly. Longer duration long haul treks are likely to be easier in terms of the physical walking, however you will need to be more resilient, due to simple living conditions. UK single day or weekend level 3 treks are suited to walkers and trekkers with some previous history of upland walking or alternatively a good amount of lowland training behind them.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Trek’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing very long walks in the countryside; 7 hours plus . You should be doing regular exercise, possibly with some running. Your running speed will be fairly steady; nothing too fast, and you should be able to run a minimum of 4 miles. If you do not run, you should be concentrating on other types of exercise but for longer periods of time (i.e. sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs). These other forms of exercise should be at a moderate to high level. e.g. spinning, circuits, swimming, or other sports.

Safety Information

Walking Leaders will be in attendance to offer first aid support, navigation support and general motivation for the team. With many years of challenge event experience, they know precisely how you will be feeling as you rack up those miles!

There will also be event support vehicles (outside of Wimbledon Common) to offer emergency support.

 

Weather

At most times of year the weather can go either way from warm temperatures to freezing cold – so be ready for anything – make sure you pack according to the list! Remember that layers are the key, allowing you to adjust your level of warmth more easily. We will almost certainly experience a little rain during the weekend, so make sure you have suitable waterproof gear—both jacket and trousers.
