The Rotary Exmoor Challenge 10th April 2016

Annual Walking Challenge between Districts 1175 and 1200

Supporting The Children’s Hospice South West

Sunday 10TH April 2016

Every year, the Exmoor Rotary Club holds The Rotary Exmoor Challenge. The Challenge is an amiable competitive walk between Districts 1175 and 1200 through Exmoor countryside, for a either a 10 mile or 5 mile route for those who prefer a shorter walk.The walk will be using footpaths and lanes near to Wimbleball Resevoir and Haddon Hill



Due to adverse conditions (mud!) on footpaths and parking in Morebath, the walk will now start at Upton Village Hall  TA4 2DB (not Morebath) 

 District 1200 has won the shield by a narrow margin over the past two years.

The Exmoor Rotary Challenge will be taking place on 10th April 2016.  The route this year will start from the Morebath Village Hall Morebath.   There will be refreshments at the village hall as usual.  There are some excellent country side views as you go around either walk.

The Challenge:

  1. Either a 10 mile or 5 mile route for those who prefer a shorter walk.
  2. Every Rotarian, their family, and friends completing either walk earns points for their District. The District with the most points wins the Challenge Shield for a year.
  3. The walks also raise money from sponsorship and the entry fees for The Children’s Hospice South West, which exists almost entirely from donations.

The Walks:

For 2016 we will start and finish from Morebath Village Hall Registration between 9-11am and everyone is expected to finish by 4pm.

Before and after either walk, Exmoor Rotary Club will serve complimentary refreshments in the Village Hall.


The entry fee is £7 per individual. No fee for entrants under 18.

Entry Forms can be downloaded here

An adult must accompany an entrant under 18.

Dogs are welcome but you must keep them on a lead near main roads or livestock, as the Challenge does take place in the lambing season.

  1. Sue and I will be taking part and I’d much appreciate the support of D 1200 members and their friends. It’s for a great cause and what better activity than a nice walk in lovely countryside and with friends old and new. I hope you can join me.
