Langport International Walking Festival
June 9th & 10th 2007
Come and join us! Get physical and enjoy the Somerset countryside and its delights!
This will be the second Langport International Walking Festival. The inaugural Festival in 2006 was a great success with walkers coming from far and wide to take part. Ages ranged from 6 year olds to those well over 60!
The walks are for pleasure but if you want to raise funds for a charity of your choice you are quite welcome to do so.
The Festival is an opportunity to see the beautiful countryside around Langport while giving yourself a challenge. The walks will be 5k, 10k, 20k and 42k and all will be circular starting and finishing at Langport's Cocklemoor car park . The walks will encompass the Somerset levels and will as far as possible be in the countryside and not on public roads. They will also take in some of the many pubs, small attractions and local cottage industries in the area. Snacks and light refreshments will be provided along the routes. Each person who completes the route of their choice will receive a Certificate.
Car parking is free and will be professionally marshalled. Hot showers will be available on site.
On the evening of Friday 8th June there will be dance entertainment from the Royal Marines Band on Cocklemoor. If you haven't seen this band on TV or at an event, you have really missed something! See here for more information and pictures of this amazing band. Prior booking is required for this event, tickets are £7.50 each. Contact the LADT offices (details below) for tickets.
On Saturday 9th June entertainment will be provided by the Agricultural Orchestra also on Cocklemoor. Tickets for this are £2.50 each, available from the LADT office or on the day.
