About us

E-mail Print

The West Midlands 40+ Walkers Group was formed to cater for those interested in walking and the outdoors in their 40's and beyond. We are part of the Ramblers Association. Non-members may attend any three Ramblers Association events as a guest before they must join.

 

Health & Safety

E-mail Print

All sporting and leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them and rambling is no exception. In spite of the safety of members always being the paramount concern, accidents will occasionally occur. It is important, therefore, that when entering into the activity each member appreciates that they have a responsibility to identify the hazards associated with the activity and take all reasonable steps to eliminate or minimise the potential for an accident to arise.

When do you go walking?

E-mail Print

We go walking mainly at the weekends and evening walks in the summer.

 

Where do you walk?

E-mail Print
Anywhere within a reasonable drive of the West Midlands. We explore further afield on our weekends away. We normally walk in the countryside, but sometimes enjoy exploring urban areas too.
 

How hard are the walks?

E-mail Print

We rely on our members putting on the kinds of walks they like. In practice, this means a variety of different walk styles from 3-4 miles with a tea shop up to 26 mile challenge walks, with most grades in between. Some walk leaders may grade their walks ie easy, straightforward, intermediate, challenging or difficult to approximate the effort involved. Most of our members can comfortably complete walks up to and including intermediate grading. We hope there should be something to suit everybody.

 

Do I have to book to go on a walk?

E-mail Print

No need to book. Just turn up at the start, find the leader, say hello, and off you go. Walks organised by us are free.

 

Do I have to be a member to go on a walk?

E-mail Print

We are happy for you to join us on three walks after which you would be expected to become a member of The Ramblers Association.

 

How do I decide which walk to go on first?

E-mail Print

All walks are listed on our web site. If you are an experienced walker, find a walk to match your standard. If you are new to walking, select an easy sounding one first. If you need further advice we can put you in touch with the leader of your chosen walk so you can ask any direct questions to them. The walk leader can then look out for you and make sure you are made welcome.
