Update on challenge events

Posted on 2020-08-28

We're really pleased with the feedback following the social walks announcement regarding larger group sizes, so we just wanted to update you on challenge walks and the progress we're making there. We're working hard and focussing our attention to our challenge walk guidelines. Work has already commenced and the NEC will soon be engaging with Local Group Representatives on the guidelines produced to date. We still need to work with Sport England and specifically with the HM Government ‘organising outdoor sport and physical activity events framework’ in order to produce guidelines that are acceptable. Any challenge walk guidelines will require further consultation with Sport England and sign off from the LDWA insurance Broker in the same way that the social walk guidelines were.

The rules for larger events differ in Wales and Scotland and the NEC continues to work at enabling all activities to continue in all nations. However, due to the differences in what is currently permitted, some parts of the UK might have events and others might be more restricted.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as the NEC continues to work towards enabling challenge walks to return.


David Morgan, LDWA Chair
