Waendel walking on sunshine

What? You live in Northamptonshire and you've never done the Waendel walk? Let's get involved

The Waendel Walk, Wellingborough, Friday 12-14 May

What?  You live in Northamptonshire and you’ve never done the Waendel walk?  Truthfully, neither had I until the last couple of years and it’s on my doorstep! However, now the Muddy household looks forward to this weekend for lots of reasons. It’s dog and kid friendly, you don’t have to be super-fit to take part, and there are numerous watering holes on every route.  What’s not to like about that? Better still, the annual event brings thousands of visitors from all over the world to little old Wellingborough and it’s another great secret of our wonderful county.  This year’s International Waendel Walk Weekend features routes with choices from 5, 10, 15, 25 and 42km for walkers of all ages and abilities. All routes travel across fields, footpaths and roads, whilst visiting places of interest and local villages in and around Wellingborough.  That doesn’t include Matalan, although I think it is on one of the shorter routes.

Are we nearly there yet?

Why not use your opportunity to take part in the Waendel Walk and get out and explore the fantastic scenery and culture in Northamptonshire. As a non- competitive event open to everyone, the walks really are open to all ages.  Every walker who completes their chosen route on Saturday or Sunday will be able to purchase a medal or pin. To qualify for a two day medal you must complete the same distance on both days.

Guys? Guys? You’re going the wrong way
