Approx 12 miles
The difficulty of the walk is moderate. A good deal of the walk will be over moors.
There will be 2 separate groups of walkers; chilled and intense - you will be asked to provide your fitness level in your registration. The groups will set off at 2 different times so we all get to the finish point around the same time.
Each walking group will be lead by a group leader, who will have detailed directions and first aid training.
You are welcome to bring dogs provided that they are good with people, other dogs and horses.
