Our series of training walks are designed to get you hiking fit ahead of the Pilgrims Way Challenge on the 22nd June.
Whether you’re taking on the 25, 35 or even 55km distance, preparing with the right kit and training beforehand will lead to a much more comfortable and enjoyable day.
We cater for all abilities on these walks. The walks are free and perfect for those who have already signed up, as well as those wanting to find their feet before registering for the main challenge. Guests are welcome to attend the training walks too, although in this instance we do ask that you consider making a donation to Pilgrims Hospices.
If you’re taking on the Pilgrims Way Challenge on 22nd June but aren’t sure what to wear or carry on the day, we’ve got you covered.
