Following the cancellation of the 2020 event, and the normal 2021 event, which was replaced with the highly successful WW21 on Tour, we are pleased to announce that plans for the Waltham Walk to return to its traditional format, are underway
So all being well, WW22 will be happening on the weekend of
Saturday 21st to Sunday 22nd May 2022
Who can enter?
Ages are as at 31 August 2022, so as to align with school years. There is an overlap between each age group.
Teeni Trek – non-competitive accompanied event for ages 10-12
Mini Trek – 2 day event for ages 12-14 (teams of 3 or 4)
Main Event – 2 day event for ages 14-19 (teams of 3 or 4)
There are also 1 or 2 day Veterans events for the over 19s (no age limit!)
What happens over the weekend?
Teams will assemble at the start on the Saturday, which will be located in Maldon, and walk between checkpoints, to an Overnight Camp at Danbury. On the Sunday teams will continue walking to the finish, back in Maldon. At each checkpoint, incidents (various initiative tests and challenges) will be carried out as well as finding answers to puzzles (observation tests) along the route
Sounds great! So how do we enter?
Our WW website is being completely rebuilt at the moment and we anticipate it being up and running by 1 January 2022 with online entry for the first time, so a lot of work is going on behind the scenes.
Entries will then be available from 1 January 2022. The closing date for entries will be the end of April, to allow time for fully comprehensive Team Instructions to be issued
Before then, please register your interest by emailing Mike Wilding (WW Chairman) on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you again in person next May!
Mike & the WW Committee (October 2021)
