Our walks programme
For the full list of our Organised Walks programme and to progress a Wednesday walk booking, please see link here.
We organise a popular programme of regular weekly walks throughout the year, designed to improve both physical and mental health and available to members as well as guests. The circular walks are usually between 5-6 miles distance and approx. 2½ hours should be allowed to complete the walk.
Our organised walks will continue to comply fully with the latest government Covid-19 guidelines but also take account of recent learnings and the preferences of the regular walk participants.
Sunday Walks – These walks, suitable for all the family, depart at 10am (unless otherwise advised), and do not require any pre-booking booking, so just turn up at least 10 minutes before the departure time for the welcome briefing.
Wednesday Walks – Due to the popularity of these walks, we usually offer two walk groups each week, with each group capped at a manageable 20 participants. The first group, The Groovers, walk at a relaxed pace and/or a slightly shorter distance, departing at 10.15am. The second group, The Movers, walk at a slightly faster pace and/or a slightly extended distance, departing at 10.30am. Meet up at least 10 minutes prior to departure for the welcome briefing. To assess the demand for both groups it is necessary to retain the online pre-booking system (initially introduced for Covid-19 compliance) embedded in the details for each Wednesday walk group. The registration window opens at 3pm on the Thursday prior to the walk and closes at noon the day before the walk. After booking if you are unable to attend, please email the office.
We all need to continue to take appropriate steps to stay safe. The instructions of the walk leader must be followed at all times. You are expected to wear suitable clothing and footwear for the conditions. Bring all of your own provisions including water and other refreshments, and you are requested to continue to carry a face covering.
Please do not attend any of our walks if feeling unwell, or if you have been asked to self isolate or quarantine to comply with Covid-19 requirements. If after attending a walk you develop COVID-19 symptoms within 48 hours of the walk and then test positive for Covid, you must let us know by emailing the office.
These walks are open to all members. Non-members are welcome to join us as guests for two or three walks, though if you walk with the group regularly you will be expected to join the Chiltern Society to support our work in caring for the Chilterns. Join here.
