Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival

Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival

Planning for our 12th Festival in 2016...

Around 4,200 walkers converged on the Lincolnshire Wolds during this year's festival, between 16 - 31 May. Almost a quarter of our feedback respondents said that this was their first time and we're delighted that such a venerable event (12 years old next year) is still attracting so many new people to get involved.

Thank you to everyone who took part in 2015, to our volunteer walk and ride leaders, our many supporters and of course all of our walkers and cyclists. We're delighted that our feedback tells us that mostly you're still enjoying what we do, with 97% enjoying their experience and 86% taking part in more than one event during the festival. 

Just over 50% of our walkers describe themselves as 'leisure' walkers, comfortable with a walk length of 3-8 miles, with around 40% keen to undertake longer walks. We make sure that our programme not only caters for experienced walkers but also has a range of opportunities for people who enjoy short walks, or who need a more accessible walk for their wheelchair or pushchair.

...and looking ahead to next year

Of course we're already busy putting together our programme for the 2016 event. Taking place from Saturday 21 May - Sunday 5 June, we'll be once again making the most of this lovely Wolds landscape, providing lots of opportunities to get out and about.

The Lincolnshire Wolds will host the 2016 National Walkers Are Welcome Conference between 14 - 16 May next year. Caistor, Market Rasen and Horncastle Walkers Are Welcome groups are working together to create a great conference programme with walks, activities, networking and discussions galore.
