The start times are all 10:00 am unless otherwise stated. The mileages quoted are a rough guide only and liable to change on the day. In extreme cases the walk may change completely so contacting the walk leader a couple of days in advance is recommended.

In the event of rain please do still meet us at the appointed venue, generally the walk will still take place or we will consider alternative plans.

Though we aim to take a common sense approach to the safety of our members and those present at STRIDE events, all those attending do so at their own risk.
