Good evening,

Please take a moment to look at the photo I’ve attached today. Do you recognise where it is ?
We walked over it yesterday on the Saturday morning walk.

That is high water !

Preston 10k

Unfortunately, however, the water was so high that the organisers of the Preston 10k had to call it off the event this morning just an hour before the event was due to commence.
Clearly there was frustration, confusion and upset amongst a large number of the mostly running participants, however, I feel they made a good decision. The trouble that there could have been with people slipping, tripping and falling on what would have been a treacherous course.

Not unusually our #nordicwalkingpreston #purpletops could be seen in a cafe smiling away.

The course itself is a lovely one, and the team have decided to offer a “Walk the Preston 10k” walk in the coming weeks for those who are on the fence about participating in the official race event. We’ll let you know as soon as its on the system.

2020 (twenty twenty)

Yes ! Already….we are planning what we will bring you in 2020.

The Planning Team met on Friday and settled on dates and locations for Adventure walks for the coming year and we will be releasing those to you soon. Three cheers for the Planning Team.

We will be including two COACH trips, one March time and one September time.

Naturally there will be plenty of social outings.

And hot off the press – we are intending on returning to BASSANO in Italy.

We are so excited about this opportunity and we hope to get you further information and dates in the coming week or two.

There are a number of other additions and changes we will be presenting over the coming weeks, all in favour of supporting you, your health, your wellbeing, your walking opportunities, and of course our wonderful #strongertogether community.
