Join Andy and the OutdoorLads for a satisfying Sunday stretching of the legs along the historical Manchester railway lines.
This time - we are doing it backwards, again !!
From the start point we will make our way along the well maintained quality footpaths; taking in the captivating surrounding wildlife and woodlands.
We will pass through a variety of country parks, including Blackleach, Parr-Fold, and Worsley Woods. During the event there will be opportunities for a coffee break and lunch. There will be plenty of opportunities to stop for refreshments.
This is a dog friendly walk so please bring your pooches along. The more the merrier !!
