Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce the fourth British Nordic Walking Exel Challenge 2018. The Exel Challenge will be taking place on Sunday 18 November at Chasewater Country Park, this will give you an opportunity to join fellow Nordic Walkers from across the UK.

Chasewater Country Park in Staffordshire is located between Burntwood, Brownhills and Norton Canes, in a picturesque countryside setting. It covers 360 hectares, including some 90 hectares of water. Chasewater is perfect for Nordic Walking, a gentle stroll, bird watching, running, cycling or even a steam train ride.

The Country Park provides a home for many birds and animals, where the keen naturalist can find rare habitats to visit including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Chasewater was created in the late 18th century as a reservoir feed for the Wyrley and Essington Canal system. The water in Chasewater still provides the Canals and Rivers Trust (formerly British Waterways) with essential water to maintain levels in the Birmingham Canal Network, and beyond.

The route takes you around Chasewater reservoir on cycling and walking paths. The majority of the route is on rough walking paths and there are also a few tarmac paths. You will walk along the waters edge, across a dam and through grasslands and wooded areas. The route is relatively flat with one small incline. A short part of the route will be along the vehicle access to a heritage railway and watersports club. There may be some vehicles travelling along this part of the route but marshalls will be in this area.

Suitable for all levels of fitness and for children and adults (children must be over the age of 8).
