What to bring

Our events mostly take place outside so brace yourself for the Yorkshire weather! Sturdy footwear is recommended. As we're in the uplands weather can change quite quickly so you are advised to bring extra layers and waterproofs. If it's a hot day, remember a hat, suncream and plenty of water.

There are no toilets available at the meeting point but two are available at Colt Park (the halfway point). There are no visitor centres at this nature reserve so bring food and plenty of drink if you wish.

Parking information

Free but limited



Covid-19 secure

We are limiting numbers and encouraging people to stick to the current guidelines around social distancing. Hand sanitiser will also be available.
