We are a group of adventurers who are interested in the more challenging walks/scrambles and train together to undertake physical challenge events. This is either by day walks and/or regular weekends away to the hills :-)

Our main Challenge for 2015 is the Welsh 3000's.  A 25 mile linear route summiting all of the Welsh mountains over 3000 feet.  That's 14-16 depending upon who you listen to!  It's a toughie, but we'll build up to it.  The challenge will be to complete it over a weekend (2 or 3 days) or in a single day.

During 2014 we've completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (with 14 out of 16 finishing), National 3 Peaks (with 5 out of 6 finishing it) and the Tour de Trigs, a 50 mile 24 hour Challenge over south Warwickshire (with 3 out of 3 getting to the 35 mile check point and a certificate!).

Along the way we've raised over £3000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

No one expects you to be superhuman (we aren't) or to be experienced hillwalkers (some are, some aren't); just to have a degree of physical fitness (capable of walking 9+ miles with hills)  and the mental toughness to cope with the more challenging aspects of outdoor pursuits and/or the weather closing in!

We do expect you to 'muck in' and contribute to the group whether that's organising an event, accommodation, food & cooking or just doing the washing up!  There is a contribution to the costs of the group of £10 per person per annum.

Hillwalking, scrambling, challenge events and other outdoor pursuits we may participate in involve an inherent degree of risk, which may result in injury or even death.  By participating in the group you are accepting this risk and the personal responsibility which comes with it for your own safety and the safety of others with you.  Please ask me any questions on the nature of risks involved with the group at any point, be that before joining the group, before going away on a walk/weekend/challenge event or prior to any event beginning.

Anyway, if this appeals then come say 'Hi'

Please note that the group will be capped at so many Adventurers or so and a waiting list may apply.
