The Nikwax Caerphilly Challenge Series is set to return on May 11th 2019 - and this year it promises to be better than ever! With walks ranging from 1-5 to 22 miles there is a challenge available for people of all ages and abilities.

This year ‘The Forge’ walk comes with 4 different challenge options which include two led walks and two self-led walk challenges. The led walks give participants the option to take part in a 1-5 mile and 8-10 mile treks depending on their preference, whilst the self-led challenges include a 16 mile trek along with the monstrous 21 mile challenge. The self-led challenges are designed to accommodate walkers, joggers or even runners.

We now have a limited number of led walk places available for the 16 and 21 mile treks. Ideal for people who are well able for the distance, but cannot read a map!

Tickets for this event cost £10 and are available to purchase until the closing date on Wednesday 1st May 2019. Early bird tickets are available, if booked before the 30th January 2019, at a reduced price of £8. For under 18’s a further £2 reduction is applied to their tickets with the minimum age of 12 for any challenge over 5 miles.

Unlike the longer walks, there is no deadline for the 1-5 mile route which costs just £2 and can be paid on the day. There is no minimum age and all proceeds go to the mayors’ charity.
