•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.2015

Latest Club News from Secretary Ken Armstrong- Secretary Ken:If you have any queries or wish to draw my attention to any matter requiring attention, please feel free to get in touch by e-mail: or by phone 07810527253.This Sunday-19th April MUWC are in the Sperrins climbing Dart and Sawel mountains The walk will be different from our usual Sunday club walk. We plan to meet up with North West Mountain Rescue Team (NWMRT), who will be raising our awareness on emergency/First aid response situations. The A/B walk will start from ‘The Heritage Centre’ at 10am, trekking Dart and heading to summit Sawel. Along the route NWMRT will stage a mock incident, typical to what club members could face on the mountains. The exercise will give a chance to experience and learn how to deal with situations. It will give an opportunity to get involved, understand the level of preparedness needed and show, at first-hand, what a great resource NWMRT volunteers are, to have available Please make an effort to attend what is hoped to be a fun filled walk. George Hamill will lead the A/B walk. Bring waterproof boots, clothing and extra socks with you-it can be wet and boggy in the Sperrins. We will be car sharing. It is planned that those going on the walk meet at Cookstown Asda Carpark for 9.00am, where further car sharing may apply-all heading for the Sperrin Heritage Centre for 10.00am start. Below are suggested meeting times / points prior to arriving at Asda Cookstown8.20am - Portadown Seagoe Road8.30am - Moy Square8.40am - Dungannon STH car parkBefore the walk starts NWMRT will give a talk in the Heritage Centre about what they do and an opportunity to look at equipment/vehicles etc and meet some of the team.
