WASHLANDS BIG BREAKFAST TRAIL | 3 MILES | EASY| NORTHANTS

February 16 @ 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 🥾

We will set off from Lakeside Pub, and make our way to the canal. After a short walk along the canal we then climb the small hill to the beautiful Nature Reserve / Flood Plain of Northampton, known locally as The Washlands. We pick up our pace as we circle the flood plain, taking a few snaps as we go. 3 miles later we will be back at the pub and ready for a hot coffee and perhaps a fry up!

❓ ROUND-ROBIN QUESTION: Do you like to put sauce on your food? (Ketchup, tartar, peppercorn, mayo etc).

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.

🐶 IS THIS WALK DOG-FRIENDLY? yes (and they are allowed in the bar of the pub for breakfast).

☕️ BREAKFAST? We often stop for breakfast after a morning miracle walk. No pre-orders needed, We just turn up (although I will message them to let them know we are arriving).

🎒 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.
