The International Waendel Walk Weekend is set to take place from Friday 13 - Sunday 15 May 2016, featuring  improved routes with choices from 5, 10, 15, 25 and 42km for walkers of all ages and abilities. All routes travel across fields, footpaths and roads, whilst visiting places of interest and local villages in and around Wellingborough.  

The event is held at the Castle Theatre, Wellingborough and a host of free entertainment will be provided during the weekend.

Our online booking system is now open, alternatively bookings can also be made by using our Application Form.

Why not use your opportunity to take part in the Waendel Walk and get out and explore the fantastic scenery and culture in Northamptonshire. As a non- competitive event open to everyone, the walks really are open to all ages.

Every walker who completes their chosen route on Saturday or Sunday will be able to purchase a medal or pin. To qualify for a two day medal you must complete the same distance on both days.
