Starting and finsihing from Hay-on-Wye (postcode HR3 5DQ) then navigating sections of the Black Mountains, the usual 3 routes are on offer:
Short route - 7 miles (easy with 1 hill)
Medium route -14.5 miles (easy/moderate 2 hills)
Long route - 23.5 miles (tough with 4 hills)
Please note that these distance are rough approximations to give you an idea of what to expect.
As long time particpants of this event (over 120 teams every year) already know this is considered the most unique charity walk in the summer calendar because it happens in a different part of the UK ever year and we don't put out markers every 100 yards. We give you an illustrated guide booklet and a map and you have to make it from check point to check point and at each one you'll get water and plenty of chocolate until you reach the finish line. So this is a REAL CHALLENGE!

If you wish to buy a breakfast or baguette before the walk then you must pay the catering company for it in cash on the morning of the walk in the canteen of the school where we are starting the walk, but please let me know now at email@example.com and I will pass your request onto the catering company.
