About the event
Meeting at Ilam Hall for around 9:15am, ready to be on the bus taking us to our start location for 9:30am. Please note that the bus fare (£3.50 pp) is not included in the price of this Wayfarer Lite.
Join Debs aka SHORTY for a wonderful Wayfarer Lite, starting on the Manifold Way with a flat first mile before heading uphill towards Ecton, ready to soak in the amazing views the Peak District has to offer across High Wheeldon, Chrome Hill and Revidge. Don't fear, there are some downhills too, enjoying the meandering river through the valley, spying views of Thor’s Cave. Onto the Manifold Trail, heading towards Throwley Old Hall, an important ruin in the Peak District National Park and eventually, back to Ilam.
Expect to cover around 8.5 miles in 4 to 5 hours. We don't rush on our Wayfarer rikes, but instead go at a comfortable pace for all in the group, mostly hiking and breaking into an easy run when the terrain / conditions allow.
The idea of a RIKE is to approach it with the mindset that it’s mostly a hike, where you run a bit when the going is easy, rather than running until you’re forced to walk when the going gets tough! The benefits of riking include more ‘time on feet’ as well as the other physcial and mental benefits of a longer run, without feeling shattered afterwards!
