MORNING MIRACLE ABINGTON PARK WALK | 3 MILES | EASY | NORTHANTS

January 14 @ 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:

Our morning miracle walks are each Friday from 6.15am. Coffee will be supplied from Dave, the mobile shop, followed by a brisk walk along the trail.

This is a brand new walk for the AG portfolio and has been written by Alison Snelling. We explore Abington Park and reveal some of the histories as well. We will spot fairy houses, the famous “no-no” tree and other unusual things. The park itself is beautiful and the walk includes all the lakes.

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 to receive your new walker briefing. The walk leader will usually be wearing an AG baseball cap, or a yellow high vis vest.

If you are interested in purchasing any AG merchandise, or perhaps some snacks/water for the walk, then “Dave”, the AG mobile shop will be on-site from 6am -6.120 am – the price list can be found here. If you are an AG Club member then there is no cash needed, we simply add the fee to your account.

MEETING PLACE: We will meet at the junction between Sandringham Road and Christchurch Road – you will see the gap in the wall. (for the exact location click on the What3Words link below).

Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use the What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • Sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets.
  • Your walk leader is not allowed to carry personal possessions for you.  Please bring a bag with drink/pockets to carry keys/hats/gloves etc  (think about supporting the AG brand by purchasing an AG rucksack!). 
  • If you wish to bring and PPE, masks etc, please do.  All walk leaders will also carry sanitiser, protective gloves and the first aid kit.
  • From January, at the beginning of each walk, Dave (the mobile shop) will be present with hot tea/coffee/chocolate and snacks. These are free, however, there will be a donation tin available to help replenish the stock levels.
