2024 Programme

05/04/24 With 4 weeks to go before the Festival starts, bookings are flying in. Half of our walks are already full and we have over 1,000 bookings with 85% of places filled. You can easily see which walks have availability on Eventbrite.

We don't have any waiting lists this year, but a good time to check whether any places have become available is from Saturday 13th April through to Sunday 21st April, as reminders will go out on a daily basis for the walks for each corresponding day that they take place on the Festival.

Final reminders go out week commencing 29th April, so keep your eyes peeled for places also becoming available then.

12/01/24 Medal News Our medal challenges are very popular and have traditionally been awarded for completing distances over the Festival of  25, 50, 75 and 100 miles. This year, in recognition of Neil, our former Chair, whose leadership of the Festival enabled it to grow significantly, gaining a fantastic reputation both locally and nationally, we are delighted to announce the Cartman Challenge Medal for those who complete over 150 miles during the Festival. Neil is very honoured to bestow his name to the challenge and completed this distance himself frequently over many Festivals.
