2017 Exmoor Challenge

Supporting the Children’s Hospice South West and Local Charities

Sunday 2nd April 2017

We have been invited by Rotary District 1175 to defend our title

Rotarians, their families, and friends from Rotary Districts 1175 and 1200 earn points for their District by completing either a 4.5 or 9.5 mile walk. The route will be starting from Oakford Village Hall EX16 9ER and passing through the beautiful surrounding countryside. The District with the most points will win the Challenge Shield and keep it for a year. The shield is currently held by District 1200 and has been for a while.

Walkers over 18 pay an entry fee of £7. Walkers under 18 enter free, but an adult must accompany them. Dogs are welcome, but owners must keep them under control as the Challenge is held in the lambing season. PROPER WALKING SHOES/BOOTS ARE ADVISED.

The Challenge raises money for The Children’s Hospice South West and other local charities by sponsorship and from the entry fees. Last year the event raised £1400 with 120 walkers competing.

Further information will be provided but in the meantime please register by e mail

Yours in Rotary, Derek Webster, President – Rotary Club of Exmoor
