The Ridgeway40 Walk

40 miles on foot in one day

Covid19 - Special Considerations and Rules for this event

The event will follow social distancing and hygiene guidelines and necessary operational changes to allow the event to happen are as follows,

A, Your tracking tag will be issued at the start. Please don’t lose it, and securely fix it to your rucksack or clothing before you start the walk with a length of string (which you must bring from home) so that it can easily be scanned at check points.

B, At checkpoints limited food will be available and issued to you by the marshal. Water/squash will be issued by the marshal in disposable cups. Water bottles can not be filled. Use the water from the disposable cups to top up your water bottle if necessary. Make sure you fill your water bottles at home and bring them to the start. The Avebury hall will not be available for filling water bottles.

C, The finish will, this year be at the Streatley Youth Hostel (NOT Goring Village Hall). We will erect a big marquee on the front lawn. There will not be enough room to sit and chairs will not be provided. Food will be issued in a box and will likely be a cereal bar, peanuts, banana, and drink in a carton.

D, NOTE>>> We will not be providing transport for retirees at check points onward to the finish. Entrants should make their own arrangements for this situation using friends or family or taxi. This is a 40 mile walk in limited time and requires prior training and good health. We advise that you download the App - what3words . If your family also use this app they will be able to navigate directly to your exact position.

1.   Transfer to the rescheduled date of 7th August 2021
