    Team walk #5 Botanical Gardens and Brocks Hill Country Park

    Sat, August 26, 2023
    2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    Join us for a 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 and running 1779 miles or more! That’s the same distance Frodo and Sam travelled with the One Ring between Hobbiton and Mount Doom.

    Info and tips:

    • Start points (take your pick):
    1. Haymarket Bus station to get the 14:03 x7 bus (+11 minute walk)
    2. The Botanic Gardens entrance 14:30 ish https://w3w.co/landed.tides.chill 
    3. Brocks Hill Visitor Centre for 4pm (ish – text the captain for eta from Garden team)  https://w3w.co/easy.shirts.hunt
    • Distance: Exploring the gardens and park and if you’re a long distance walker you can even walk back!
    • We’re currently investigating if Brocks Hill has toilets
    • Have a fully charged phone so strava can track your distance.
    • Pace: We will pace to our slowest team members or split into speedy and chilled teams depending on the day.
    • Please wear sensible shoes and weather appropriate clothing (and if you suffer from hay fever antihistamines may be a wise idea for the gardens)
