Bridgnorth Lions Junior Walk Rules

For safety reasons, the Junior Walk is restricted to 250 Juniors (school years 5 to 9). Junior walkers cannot be accompanied by an adult as this would compromise our safety measures, particularly on crowded parts of Brown Clee Hill. There may be cases, for example, for medical reasons, that a junior walker must have constant supervision. Please Contact Us if this is the case as we can make individual exceptions by prior agreement.

The safety of our junior walkers is paramount and for this reason we have implemented a number of safety measures:

  • Roads are closed to all traffic at the start of the Junior Walk for the first 3 miles.
  • The course is clearly marked so that no-one should stray off the course.
  • Junior walkers are counted before the start, and counted in at the finish. The Junior Walk is not closed until all walkers are accounted for.

Checkpoints

  • Marshals provide water at checkpoints at each mile of the course.
  • Marshals will be on the lookout for any walker who is struggling.
  • If necessary, they can arrange collection of any walker unable to continue.
  • First aid at 5 miles and at the finish (Ditton Priors Village Hall).
  • At The Finish (Ditton Priors Village Hall)
  • Refreshments will be available at the finish for all participants.

Getting to the Junior Walk

Competitors are required to make their own way to and from Ditton Priors. Restrictions on access to / from the start area by car will apply to ensure the safety of the walkers and avoid congestion.
