In conjunction with Chepstow Walking Festival, an exciting spring kanter (with a 'twist') in the beautiful Wye Valley on the Wales/England border. The event uses established long distance routes such as Offa's Dyke, Wye Valley Walk, Wales Coast Path and Gloucestershire Way as well as general paths to link main routes. This event provides a choice of four routes, where clues need to be gathered. The twist is this: If you do not have the confidence to self-navigate, then GPX tracks and route descriptions will be provided to enable you to walk the route of your choice. Answers to clues shall still be required in order to earn a certificate! There are NO checkpoints on the routes and entrants will need to ensure that they have sufficient food and drink for their chosen route. The South Wales LDWA will supply a substantial hot meal and hospitality on your return to Chepstow, whilst tea and toast are provided at the start
