UFRC Open Weekend 2017 18 September 2017

Rambling Clubs Across Northern Ireland Challenge Walkers To Try Something New (via Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs)

UFRC 

The Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs are pleased to announce their upcoming Open Weekend on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October 2017 hosted by clubs across Northern Ireland

Over 10 walking clubs from across Northern Ireland will be welcoming new walkers to their clubs for a specially tailored ‘Welcome Walks’ on Saturday 30th September & Sunday 1st October 2017 with the intention of encouraging more people to get active and increase new membership.

Commenting ahead of the event UFRC Chairman Graham Seymour said; “So many people are nervous about walking in the hills on their own, for others it is for health or social reasons that they like the idea of regularly walking with a group. Our clubs are a real lifeline to many of our members who enjoy the weekly or fortnightly challenge of getting out into the hills or exploring local trails. I would encourage anybody interested in keeping active, making new friends or simply looking to experience some of Northern Ireland’s spectacular scenery to come along to one (or more!) of these welcome walks.”

Welcome walks are set to place in a range of locations including the Mournes, Antrim Hills, Crawfordsburn and the Comber Greenway. To take part is free however there are limited spaces on each of the walks so booking in advance is advised. More information on these walks including how to reserve your space can be found on both the UFRC & WalkNI websites.

The UFRC are currently supported by SportNI & The National Lottery Fund through the Active Clubs Programme.

The Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs is the Governing body for Rambling and Hillwalking Clubs in Northern Ireland.
