Rutland Walking Festival

Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival 2016

21st May - 12th June 2016

‘Great places to visit, views to see and people to meet’

Discover where walking and cycling can take you this summer. Every year we encourage people to take to their feet and bike to feel the benefits of walking and cycling. They are both recommended activities to lose weight, get more active and become healthier.

The Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival is back for 2016 following huge success over the last seven years. The festival is a fun packed celebration of Rutland and its glorious countryside and will host led walks and bike rides to suit all ages and abilities, perfect for a family day out. The residents of Rutland are encouraged to join the many visiting walkers and cyclists who travel from far and wide.

The festival is free of charge and open to everyone. It includes led walks and rides around the historic county of Rutland. The festival will include on average 2-3 walks and rides a day which are suitable for all ages and abilities. It's a perfect opportunity to meet new people with similar interests, explore different areas across the county and refreshments are available on many of the walks and rides.

Walking Festival: 21st – 28th May 2016

Rutland will be hosting a two week long walking festival building on a successful event in 2015. The walks include a range of paces from a leisurely stroll admiring the views to fast paced walks that will improve your fitness. During week two of the festival you can walk the 65 mile Rutland Round across 7 days with its author John Williams.

Walk the Rutland Round in 7 days: 29th May – 4th June 2016

During week two of the Walking Festival, you can walk the 65 mile Rutland Round across 7 days or even just try a section of it. Following your knowledgeable guide, John Williams, explore the county boundary, occasionally delving into the county to see beautiful market towns and of course, Rutland Water. What better way to get a true feel for the beauty of the county through the eyes (and footprints) of someone as passionate as John.

  • If you enjoy walking, hiking, trekking or like to find out about a new village or town, or a new national park, walking festivals are excellent ways to see the different parts of the country with local guides. These events and festivals are often organised by local people who know the walks and the areas very well and more often than not are non-profit events, meaning the walks are either free or only a small amount of money.Read more »
