Jane Tomlinson’s Walk For All
Take part in Walk For All
Walk For All aims to be Yorkshire’s biggest mass participation walking festival this summer. It’s taking place on Sunday, 14th August 2011, and thereâ€™s a route for everyone.
Whether you are a keen walker, you’re looking for something to do with the children this summer, you want the challenge of a marathon walk or just enjoy walking in beautiful countryside then this is a cracking option. The Jane Tomlinson Yorkshire Walking Festival has four great routes.
26 Miles – Marathon Walk
The route involves a varied terrain, breathtaking views, Malhamdale and both Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent, two of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks.
You have to be 18 and over, it’ll take between 6.5 & 10 hours and has an entry charge of £25. However, the fee includes, among other things, breakfast sandwiches and a hot drink before you set off, an emergency pack, lunch, a well marshalled course.
This course takes in the stunning Malham Cove, including the 418 steps to the top. It will take somewhere between 3.5 & 5 hours but you need to be 18 or over. There’s a £20 entry fee which includes, among other things, breakfast sandwiches and a hot drink before you set off, an emergency pack, lunch, a well marshalled course.
A challenging route for those who are, perhaps, daunted by the longer walks. However, the scenery is just as spectacular, including Attermire Scar. The fee is £8 per person and children can enter if with an adult.
4.5 Mile – Walk and Wheel
This one is perfect if you are looking for a fun activity to enjoy with friends or as a group. The route is based at Malham Tarn Walk and has been chosen with those who are less mobile in mind, including wheelchair users or mixed mobility parties. The course follows wide, steady surfaces with some undulation and the occasional challenging sections of ascent and descent.
