Rustick Walks Weekender May 2019

If you enjoyed Rustick 2018 and can’t wait till we return in 2020 why not join Sam Armstrong, the local Instructors and their Teams for a taste of the Rustick walks over three days in May 2019 (May 3rd, 4th and 5th)

Although there will not be a central HUB it’s still a great way to enjoy these iconic walks such as the Dovedale Challenge, Thorpe Cloud, Tissington Trail etc with competent leaders and back markers. There will plenty of opportunities to socialize and mix with other Nordic Walkers too.

Each walk will be loaded onto the NWUK Exercise Anywhere Portal and those with FREEDOM passports will be able to book in to as many or as few as you can fit into over the weekend. If you haven’t got a Passport, Sam and the Team will be offering a conversion and/or tuition package with a set itinerary too.

Registration for the Walks and Classes will be available soon.

Available Walks – Full List Coming Soon!

A Walk to The Cloud

An opportunity to climb the conical shaped Thorpe Cloud, an impressive limestone hill that stands in isolation. It rises straight up from the River Dove guarding the entrance to Dovedale and reaches a height of 942ft. Its distinctive shape viewed gives the hill a mountainous feel.

Two Dales and a Trail

This walk takes in the beauties of one of the many faces of Dovedale, before climbing out by way of a tributary and as far as the upland village of Biggin. The village sits on the limestone plateau of the White Peak, one of those places that seem to be cut off from the frequently busy more popular tourist villages.
