8 Peaks Challenge – Kington Walks
September 23 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Eight Peaks Challenge
You can take part in this event either walking or running. You find your own way round using a map and may go either clockwise or anticlockwise. The winner is the person or team who collects the most clipper marks and in the case of a tie, the fastest time around.
Set off 9am-10am checking out and in at the Festival Office. You can check back in until 18:00 and collect the Eight Peaks Challenge Certificate which will show your recorded time. The event centre will close at 18:00. The eight peaks are to the north and west of Kington and each gives a different perspective of the amazing views of the area. They range in height from 303 to 426 meters with Kington being at 170m. On each hill there will be a clipper to mark your card. There are also three extra clippers to assist you in keeping to footpaths and not stray.
Explorer map 201 will be needed for this event (for sale in numerous shops around the town).
