How much does it cost?
WE CURRENTLY HAVE TWO MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS:-
- Pay monthly for unlimited walks at £10 a month. (or £8 a month if you pay annually).
- PAYG (Pay as you go) – if you walk less than three times a month, then the PAYG option is better for you. Simply apply for a PAYG membership at £4 a walk.
Where are your walks located?
You can find all of our walks listed on the events page of our website.
Currently, we are operating in Northamptonshire and Bucks, however, new areas are developing all the time.
We also organise weekend breaks which are available for members and non-members
How often do you walk?

Tuesday or Wednesday day time @ 9.45 am
Thursday evenings @ 6.15 pm
Two weekend walks a month (usually longer walks)
As club members you are also entitled to join a club only walks which includes places like The Cotswolds, Malvern Hills, various scope walks etc.
All the walks are listed on the events page of the website.
How long are your walks?
We cater for everyone.
Evening walks can vary from 2-5 miles.
Weekend walks tend to be from 6-15 miles.
We also run a variety of longer events such as walking up Snowdon, Peak District walks or venturing off to Spain to walk the Camino – however, these breaks will be chargeable.
Do you have to be fit to join?
OUR WALKS ARE FOR EVERYONE, HOWEVER, WE DO GRADE THE WALKS AS FOLLOWS:-
- Easy – a very flat route, usually on paved pathways. The average pace is more of a leisurely stroll.
- Moderate – may include a few steep hills, stiles or ploughed fields that can sometimes be proved to be challenging. All walks over 6.5 miles will be graded as moderate.
- Challenging – every now and then we like to increase the pace. If you see a walk that is labelled as challenging then you know that the pace will be fast and that you are likely to break into a sweat. A challenging walk may include hills, mountains or even a geocaching trail that will take us through thick woods whilst in search of plastic boxes.
WE SPLIT THE GROUPS
If we have over 20 attendees then we will split the group into fast and regular paced, which solves two issues:-
- No-one gets frustrated as they are waiting for the slower ones to catch up.
- No-one feels that they are slowing a group down.
- We have tail walkers on all of the walks and groups so no-one is ever left behind.
Do you walk in the winter?
Yes, although the walks in the winter time are usually shorter and are located in reasonably lit areas with well-trodden paths.
All we ask is that you bring along a torch, headlamp or shoe lights, and reflective clothing during the months of October – March.
Are you insured?
Yes. Each qualified walk leader is insured to walk with up to 15 people per group.
Are you qualified?
Yes. The Walk Directors are Outdoor First Aid Trained and hold Mountain Leader certifications.
If the walk director is not present then a qualified/dedicated first aider will be nominated for the walk.
Are dogs welcome?
Yes. Dogs are welcome on nearly all of our walks, but we ask for only one dog per human please.
Sometimes you will see a note on an event saying “small dogs only” – this simply means that there may be many stiles on the route which are not dog friendly. Heaving large dogs over stiles can slow the group down, so we ask that only small dogs attend these walks.
If we are aware of cattle in numerous fields on a particular walk, then again we will make a note of no dogs allowed, which is for the safety of the group.
There are no permissions expressed or implied by the Adventure Geek organisers. Participants make use of the facilities at their own risk and without express permission from the Adventure Geek organisers. Walking is a physically active sport. If you have any doubts about your abilities, you should always seek advice from your GP before embarking on an Adventure Geek walk. I accept that I do so entirely at my own risk and that it is my responsibility to ensure that I am fit and able to take part in the event. We regroup often and our walks cater for all levels of fitness. Children under the age of 16 years old are the responsibility of their parents or guardians and need to be accompanied at all times before, during and after the walk. Adventure Geek volunteers do not accept responsibility for injury, loss and damage sustained by a participant unless the above injury, loss and damage are proven to have been caused as a direct result of negligence on the part of the organisers. Dogs are welcome on the majority of our walks, however, we kindly ask that only one dog per walker and that the welfare of the animal remains your responsibility throughout your walk. On occasion, we may add a note of “No dogs allowed” on specific walks (usually those with cattle), please respect this note.
