    For all routes you must visit each checkpoint,including the Finish. The tables below give an outline of each option.

    Please Note:

  1. The timetables below are considered to be a rough guide only. Walkers neednot worry unduly if they are a little behind schedule, unles they are reallyslow. In the event of deteriorating weather, slow walkers could be asked toretire for their own safety.

  2. Checkpoint closing times (which are shown in the timetables below) will bestrictly adhered to except in an emergency. After a checkpoint has closed,all walkers should proceed directlyto the Finish (this year the Scout Hall at Fairfield Car Park), which will close at 2000. If you retire, please telephone Central Control immediately,this number is on the checkpoint card, or we may unnecesarily initiate asearch for you. Please do not send text mesages:they are not sufficiently reliable.

  3. Be careful when crosing roads. When walking on the road follow the highway code.
