Weald Walkers Wander
Sunday, 07 May 2017

A Walking Rally with a Difference

A 10 mile Treasure Hunt
Solve the Clues
Find the Checkpoints
Test your Map Reading Skills
Challenges at Checkpoints

HISTORY: In 1965 Croydon YHA Group decided to organise its own walking rally to combat the problem found in other walking rallies, where time restrictions punished slower walkers. The aim of the Weald Walkers Wander is for teams to use their skill and judgement to complete the route by answering questions and solving puzzles to find the route to the next checkpoint. It is a leisurely walk and not a race against time although an overall time limit of 7 hours will be set. It is open to anyone, of any age, who enjoys the countryside that surrounds us.

THE EVENT: The walk is usually about 10 miles. You will need to solve clues to find each checkpoint and your map and compass skills will also be put to the test. Points are awarded for completing quizzes and games, at the checkpoints. A trophy is awarded to the winning team. Everyone who successfully completes the course will be awarded a certificate.

THE TEAMS: You will need to enter in teams of between 2 and 5 people. Everyone is welcome - young or not not so young, families or other groups, however at least one person in each team must be 16+.

DATE/TIME: Sunday, 07 May 2017. Start times allocated between 9.00 - 10.00am, with teams leaving at 3 minute intervals.

START/FINISH: To Be Announced
Advance booking is recommended.

WHAT TO BRING: The latest Explorer map, 1:25,000 scale, pen and paper, compass, suitable footwear and clothing and some snacks for the way.
