•Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed.•Mid-Ulster Walking Club and Cookstown Council together organise Sperrintrek walks during the year. •We have a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have been to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran. •In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. •Shorter mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape.•Occasional trips abroad are organised from within the Club. •We organise our own training sessions.2014
All new club members and visitors will be expected to do at least one ‘B’ walk to allow their walking abilities to be assessed OR to provide evidence of having recent ‘A’ walk experience before they will be permitted to join a club ‘A’ walk.
Full members £ 20,Thursday walkers £10.Prospective new members £2 for Thursdays and £4 for Sundays-taken off subscription on subsequent joining.
