Legstretchers, the long distance walking group within Norfolk Ramblers, has been restarted and the first walk will take place this weekend, on Sunday 5 February.
Everyone is very welcome at the walk which will take place near North Walsham, and which is 18 miles long. In future, the Legstretchers walks will take place on the first Sunday of every month and will be advertised in the area programme, on Meetup, Facebook, the area web-site and also on the group’s new web-site at http://www.legstretchers.org.uk/.
Julian White, the area publicity officer, is leading the walk and said:
“It’s great to have Legstretchers back in Norfolk, offering a longer distance option to those walkers who fancy the challenge! I’ve been delighted with the number of walk leaders who have come forwards, so I’m very optimistic that the group will have a successful future”.

We will report back with photos after the event!
This is the latest post in the series about the various groups within Norfolk Area Ramblers.
Second in the series is Legstretchers.
This group is being newly re-established in 2017 having previously been popular as the county’s long-distance walking group within the Ramblers. The first walk will take place on 5 February 2017 and then every month from then on.
The walks are traditionally around 18 miles in length, sometimes a little more. The walks are at a relatively fast pace to ensure that the group gets around the entire distance in a reasonable period of time, but they’re never hurried or rushed.
Many walkers are interested in walking long distances but are concerned that they can’t keep up. The best way to measure this is to try a walk of around ten to twelve miles and check that you feel comfortable with that distance. Then you’re ready to give a longer distance a try!
