With three circular walks setting off throughout the day theywere delighted to be joined by families for the first time thisyear, who enjoyed the 4.4km Tegg’s Nose Trail. To mark theirspecial 25th Anniversary they included a gruelling 25kmroute, which involved hiking to the summit of Shutlingsloe andTegg’s Nose!

Walkers completed the routes in record time with their youngestparticipant in the 25km, 13 year old James Martin, first back withhis mum and dog Misty!

Walkers enjoyed a warming cup of tea and delicious burger fromthe BBQ on their return.
