Walking Event, Sat 1 Feb 2020



Lt. Col. The Lord Crawshaw of Aintree O.B.E., T.D., D.L., was a great friend of and fellow walker with Llanwrtyd Wells Walking Club.

Part of our Annual Challenge Walks Programme, this annual memorial walk has been organised in his honour to recognise his contribution to walking in Wales. Dick Crawshaw was a past President of the Long Distance Walking Association and established a world non-stop walking record of 255.8 miles in 1972.

Our walk does not attempt to challenge that record but offers 2 waymarked routes - 12 or 20 miles - all starting from the Llanwrtyd square.

There is a badge and certificate for all who finish plus spectacular scenery, good company, and the warmest of welcomes from the Llanwrtyd community.

For this winter walk entrants must be properly equipped and carry survival gear. Online entries close 7 days before the event, but you can enter on the day for a £2.00 surcharge. In addition to the way-marked walks, there are 2 guided walks of 5 or 8 miles available for those who are slightly less energetic. Entry to these is £5.00.
