Walk Description:

The terrific Tuesday series of Explorer WALX starts from picturesque Thorpe.  Literally, at the gateway to Dovedale, this appealing little village is set in some of the most beautiful countryside.

Close to the junction of the beautiful rivers Dove and Manifold, it was originally a group of farms and isolated cottages around the tiny church of St Leonard.

Designed to help you to keep improving and get noticeable results, mainly on footpaths through fields, hills and views. 

Max numbers apply to these walks. 

 

Please note:  Allow 90 minutes for these series of walks. 

Please bring your own hot drink and will provide the snacks.

WALX speed guide: this walk is graded at a moderate level.

Gentle stroll - Gear 1/2 - A nice pace that you can do for extended periods. 2-2.5mph (these generally are our Well Being walks)  

Easy walk -Gear 2 -Slightly faster pace gained through technique. Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk. 2.5mph. (these are generally our a crossover of our wellbeing and moderate walks)  

Moderate walk - Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery. 2.5mph-3mph+ (these are generally our Workout walks and longer Adventure walks)  

Strenuous walk - Gear 3/4 – Adding more speed through technique and intensity, intervals, speedhyking.
