    Team walk #1 Statue of liberty to Hidden Orchard + Picnic

    Sun, June 18, 2023
    11:00 am - 2:00 pm

    Join us for our first team walk towards the big 2023 challenge! All in aid of Loros, getting out and about with friends and helping the planet!

    We are walking, cycling or even rowing 1779 miles! (not all in one go of course!)  That’s the same distance Frodo and Sam travelled with the One Ring between Hobbiton and Mount Doom.

    Today we will walk from the statue of liberty (yes we have one here in Leicester!) to a hidden Orchard in LE3 so remember team members have a fully charged phone so strava can track your distance.

    Info and tips:

    • Start point: Mini Statue of Liberty, Walnut St, Leicester LE2 7DZ or what 3 words https://w3w.co/focal.sentences.dash
    • Distance: Approximately 2.1 miles + exploring the Orchard (and getting to the start point if you like)
    • Feel free to bring your own Pic-Nic if the weather holds out we’ve been told there’s space and benches!
    • Your choice if you bus, cycle or walk back
    • Pace: We will pace to our slowest team members or split into speedy and chilled teams depending on the day
