The Broads Walk Challenge
The Broads Walk Challenge offers the perfect location for one of the best river walks in the UK. This National Park is beautiful, with unique habitat, offering fantastic wildlife and beautiful country views.
It has quiet country lanes, well-maintained tracks, paths and nature trails such as the Weavers Way. You will find yourself trekking through gently rolling countryside following the winding rivers and waterways as they make their way out to sea. You will be fully supported and we will provide some good food along the way.
If you wish to fundraise for a special cause - then be part of this exciting event. It will be genuinely tough but totally achievable for all levels of experience. Your friends, family and colleagues will recognise the scale of your challenge, and should generously support you with their sponsorship!
You can walk, jog or even run, on your own on in a team.
Since the lockdown restrictions were eased at the beginning of August, we have implemented a number of strategies to ensure your safety and wellbeing, whilst continuing to offer high quality and value for money sporting events for you to enjoy.
Given the changes in some restrictions that came into place on Monday, we would like to take the opportunity to remind you that we will continue to arrange events in line with guidance from The Government, UK Athletics, British Triathlon and British Cycling.
In response to these guidelines, we have implemented and been adhering to the following measures at all of our current sporting events:
A limit on the number of available spaces
Required Pre-registration - with no registration available “on the day”.
Staggered wave starts with 15 minutes between each wave
No water tables or stops are provided – please ensure you bring your own drinking water
Sanitisation stations – available in the race village for your use
Race medals and mementos are posted out to everyone following the event
Two Meter Social Distancing measures are kept to in the race village and while out on the course route at all times
No spectators at the events or in the race village
We will endeavour to continue offering a regular programme of events as we have since restrictions were eased and do our very best to limit any disruptions to our calendar through cancellations. We are also continually looking forward to 2021 and being able to return to our normal events calendar whenever we can.
