Health & Safety

We are committed to running the walking weekend safely and appreciate your cooperation with this. Participants, however, take part in walks at their own risk and we cannot accept responsibility for any accidents or injury.

If you have a health condition that you think is relevant, please make us aware of this prior to your walk/s.

Dogs (except guide dogs) are not permitted on the walks.

Persons under 16 years must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Participants are asked not to smoke on walks.
