Bridgnorth Lions Senior Walk Rules
In order to be able to run a successful walk for over 40 years we do have to ensure all walkers adhere to a number of rules for their own safety and enjoyment and that of others:
Officials keep track of the walkers passing their station and can offer assistance to walkers who are experiencing difficulties.
First Aid is available around the course and at the finish.
We strongly discourage walkers from taking dogs because :-
- 22 miles on mainly roads can be very uncomfortable for a dog.
- Dogs can unsettle other walkers, particularly at crowded parts of the course.
- At the start of the Walk, with bunched walkers, there is a danger of someone tripping over a dog lead.
However if you do decide to bring your dog they must be kept on a lead at all times as the Walk is on public roads and private property where there may be sheep.
Tips and Advice for Walkers
- Water will be provided at each checkpoint, however please make sure you drink plenty of fluids during your walk, particularly on hot days.
- Make sure you are prepared for all weather conditions, this includes in warm weather wearing sunscreen, a hat and make sure you keep covered up.
- Snacks such as chocolate bars and bananas to keep you going are also a good idea.
- Don’t forget it can be cold on the summit of Brown Clee, so make sure you don’t stay there too long and come prepared for all the British weather can throw at you!
