The Striders walking group was formed following a meeting to discuss walking groups in February 2014. This group is for those U3A members who would like a longer walk.
The group meets on the third Tuesday of the month. Walks are between 8 and 10 miles in length and are within a 25 mile radius of Oakham. It is a full day walk usually starting at 10.30am with a finish time of approximately 3.30pm. All of our walks are circular walks. Walkers need to carry a packed lunch.
Members of the group volunteer to lead the walks though you are not obliged to lead a walk if you do not wish. If members would like to lead but are a little uncertain, support in planning and leading a walk will be provided by more experienced members. For example someone would do the prewalk with you.
Details of each walk are circulated by email through a monthly Newsletter. Members make their own way to the start point of the walk. Directions on how to get to the start point are provided in the monthly Newsletter. Members are invited to share cars. This can be negotiated before each walk.
If you would like more information or would like to go on the mailing list to receive the monthly Newsletter, please contact Richard Plummer.
