Event description

Description

Join fellow Nordic Walkers on Saturday 21st September for the third event of the 2019 British Nordic Walking Exel Challenge Events.

Enjoy the challenge of completing your chosen distance: 5km or 10km.

Burnham Beeches is an ideal place to Nordic Walk. Covering 220 hectares it is a National Nature Reserve and one of the best examples of ancient woodland in Britain. Famed for its beech and oak pollards – many of which are more than 400 years old – it is home to a rich variety of fungi, plants and animals.

The undulating course follows paths, tracks and drives through the woods. There are three ascents but your poles will help to make light work of them.

Located in South Buckinghamshire, The Beeches was purchased by the Corporation of London in 1880 as a green lung for the City’s residents and to save it from developers. Just 15 minutes from the M4 and M40, it is a great place for a family day out especially in autumn as the woods turn golden. It is a popular filming location too, having been the set for classics such as Carry on Camping, Robin Hood, Harry Potter and First Knight to name just a few.

To enter simply choose your challenge:

10 Km | Starts 11:00am
Entry fees: BNW Member £17 | Non-member £19

5 Km | Starts 11:20am
Entry Fees: BNW Member £13 | Non-member £15 | children 14 and under £9
