I am writing to invite your club members to take part in the 2020 Exmoor Challenge between Districts 1175 and 1200. This year the walks take place in the Quantock Hills.

Rotarians, their families, and friends from Rotary Districts 1175 and 1200 earn points for their District by completing either of two walks. The shield is currently held by District 1200 and has been for a while.

The routes will be starting from Crowcombe Village Hall TA4 4AQ from 0800 and passing through some of the most beautiful scenery in Somerset.
Walkers over 18 pay an entry fee of £7. Walker’s under18 enter free, but an adult must accompany them. Dogs are welcome, owners must keep them under control. PROPER WALKING SHOES/BOOTS ARE ADVISED.

Would you please include this letter in your club bulletin and put the event in your club diary and also please publicise the event as widely as possible to increase the amount raised for the causes.

More details will be available during February with the routes, information and sponsorship forms available from the Exmoor Rotary web site. Meanwhile please register by e mail at –

Yours in Rotary, Paul Kingdom – Rotary Club of Exmoor
