Open to Offas 2016



 Open to Offas  -  17 September 2016



Open to Offas is a long-established challenge walk held annually on the second or third Saturday in September with options of 30, 24 or 14 miles in 11.5 hours from Cilcain Village Hall (GR SJ176652) (just inside N Wales, and 15 minutes beyond Chester by-pass). This year the 24 mile walk will take you to the southern section of the 30 mile route, following the Offas Dyke path to Llyn Gweryd and passing through Llanarmom-yn-lal, over Pothole Crags before returning to Cilcain.The 30 mile and 14 mile routes will remain unchanged

 All three routes climb the Clwydian Hills to follow the Offa's Dyke Path along the ridge and return via wooded country. The views are outstanding, the terrain underfoot is excellent throughout and the event is famous for its food.  The start is at 08:30 (30 mile route) or 09:30 (24 and14-mile routes).  Explorer Sheet 265 covers the whole event apart from about a mile at the southern end of the 24 & 30 mile route.  Landranger Sheet 116 also covers everything apart from half a mile just off the eastern edge for all routes.
