HARLESTONE & POPPYFIELDS SUNRISE TRAIL | 2.5 MILES | EASY| NORTHANTS

February 9 @ 6:15 am - 8:00 am GMT

There is nothing like a good brisk walk in the countryside to start your day right.

🥾 ABOUT THE WALK 🥾

As Rebecca leads you around Harlestone Firs you will discover some strange but true stories. An attempted murder happened not far into the forest, a body found by a tunnel and two other stories that I will save as a surprise. Yes, it all happens in Harlestone Firs!

Optional – we will then pop around to Poppyfields for a good hearty breakfast at a smashing price!

❓ ROUND-ROBIN QUESTION: Do you read in the bath?

Please arrive by 6.15 am we will set off at 6.30 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

🗣 WALK LEADER(S): Rebecca Dearing

🐶 IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? Yes, dogs love this one (although I don’t think they are allowed into Poppyfields).

☕️ BREAKFAST? We often stop for breakfast after a morning miracle walk. The menu for Poppy Fields is here: https://www.farmhouseinns.co.uk/pubs/northamptonshire/poppy-field-farm/menu

🎒 WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

* A torch (please do not bring head torches as they tend to blind people). If you do not have a torch then THIS is the torch that we would recommend.

* Please wear something bright / hi-vis / or runner lights etc. Safety First.

* Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).

* A drink.

⛑ RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event may be cancelled. Keep an eye on your emails and the Facebook event page for notifications of any cancellations.
  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will usually have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • We supply free sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets.
