12/01/24 Medal News - Our medals 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. Bookings for the festival will open on Friday 1st March at 9am.
01/01/24 Happy New Year - We would like to wish all our walkers and sponsors a very Happy New Year. Over the last couple of months, the Committee and walk leaders have been working hard to bring you our Festival programme for 2024 and it is looking great.
01/10/23 Sunday Socials - Our Programme of Sunday Socials take place on the fourth Sunday of the month between October and March. Bookings are via Eventbrite.
03/07/23 New Chair - We are delighted to share that Jane Warman has taken up the role of chair for the Festival. As many of you know Jane is also one of our fabulous walk leaders and will do a great job, building on the great legacy that Neil Cartman developed. The Festival is in good hands and is supported by a fantastic Committee who are so passionate about walking and all things Ironbridge.
