*NEW* NEWNHAM CONQUEST CHALLENGE | APPROX 15 MILES | CHALLENGING

May 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm BST

If you are looking for a challenging walk to get your heart pumping then this is for you! Hills, distance, history, this walk has it all!

ABOUT THE WALK:

This is a challenging walk that starts in Daventry. Initially, it seems quite tame, but as the walk continues it will get rather challenging. The walk includes the black path, Daventry Country Park, Braunston, Staverton, Badby and ends on a high as we summit Newnham Hill.

Please bring a packed lunch with you and plenty of fluids!

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Savoury or sweet and why?

Please arrive by 8.45 am (note the slightly different start time). we will set off at 9 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.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at the car park on Eastern Way (where Parkrun starts).

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.
