COVID-19 - URGENT UPDATE

Following a change in government advice in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the National Executive Committee of the Long Distance Walkers Association has decided that all LDWA social and challenge walks will end with immediate effect. 

The ban will be reviewed by the National Executive Committee weekly or when Government advice alters, and any subsequent amendments will be communicated.

The National Executive Committee understands that the decision taken to cancel all challenge events and social walks will be concerning to members. The safety of our members, whether they are volunteer marshals or entrants, and the association's ability to deliver a safe environment for all, was the reason that the decision has been taken. The Government has advised that everyone should avoid non-essential travel and reduce contact with others in order to slow the spread of the virus. Walking socially would undermine the government's advice in relation to both non-essential travel and social contact.
