We would like to invite you to join us, friends and
neighbours for some summer fun in the sun on Sunday, July 19.
This is our fifth year of light-hearted walking competitions – called
Each Pegularity will be a walking tour on paths in and around Longfield.
Individually you have to follow the correct route, collect codewords on
the way and attempt to maintain an average speed from start to finish.
You choose the speed (e.g. 3 mph is a good walking speed), but since you
won't know the distance of each course, you have to judge your pace as
accurately as possible.
If you arrive at the finish too early/late, or miss the codewords you'll
collect penalty points.
Three Pegularities will be through the woodland tracks and fields of
Longfield. A fourth will take you out to the quiet lanes and footpaths
close by. The fifth Pegularity ends the day, where you will need to
negotiate a course around cones in our menage. Total walking distance
will be about 3.5 miles.
Some of the paths are uneven and therefore not suitable for very young
children. Sturdy footwear is essential.
The event is aimed to promote fun and fund raising, but if you want to take
things more seriously there will 12 medals to win for the best
Refreshments (hot drinks, cold drinks and nibbles) will be available all
day and there will be a break for a sumptuous buffet lunch.
Entry is free, but we ask you to donate what you can to the Multiple
Sclerosis Society. In the last four years we have raised almost £1500
Arrive around 11:15 for an 11:45 start. We usually finish by 5 pm.
We can accommodate about 24 people at each event. You are welcome bring
a couple of friends along too if we have spare places, but check with us
first when you book.
