A cool half or full marathon!

Over 2,000 challengers will take on the London Winter Walk through the heart of the Capital, following the Thames, and passing many famous landmarks. A great way to gear up for an active New Year!

The start / finish is The Oval Cricket Ground - with two Half Marathon distance options:

21km 'Eastern Walk' - a loop past Tower Bridge to Southwark Park and back.

21km 'Western Walk' - heading out to Putney Bridge and returning to The Oval.

OR - if you're up for a tough one - join the early start - do both legs, and make it a New Year Full 42km Marathon Walk.

Free Winter Walk beanie hat & neck buff - snacks and hot drinks stop en route - medals and hot meal at finish. Join us!

A group of us who are taking on the Lake District Ultra Challenge in June 2020 have decided to sign up for this as a training walk.

It would be fantastic to get as many OYNBers involved... So who’s in?!!

London - Meet-up - 2nd February

HOSTED BY: Eileen Connelly 

ADDRESS: The Prince William Henry, 216-219 Blackfriars Road, London, SE1 8NL

Hi all. This social will be on a Sunday as I know it’s difficult for some people to make Saturdays. I won’t book an area as there is plenty of space at the venue so there shouldn’t be a problem.

If you know of another venue that might be more suitable, then please let me know. If you are vegan and want to eat there, then the options are very limited. However at the last meet up no one ate - it was just a few drinks and lots of chatting 😊

There are alcohol free options including Old Moat Cider and Heineken zero on tap.

Put your name down if you’d like to come along 💖

Sign up under the OYNB team in the afternoon Open category. We are trying to make this the flagship USA Spartan race, so even if you aren’t in our area, think about a road, air trip and come join us (I have plenty of room at my place out in the country for you to make a weekend out if it!)

We are also looking for people to cheer and hopefully man a OYNB tent / table.

So come join the fun and let’s get Spartan fever going in the US!!!

Come and join me on this lovely walk around the Coledale Horseshoe

One of my favourite hill walks in the Lakes. Exquisite views over first Derwent water and beyond to be left behind and replaced with views across Buttermere. After Grisedale Pike the walking is generally on good paths with easy terrain.

The walk can be shortened or lengthened to suit the group.

A great day is promised, great walking with great new friends.

Mountain Helvellyn - Orienteering - 16th May 2020

16th May 2020 at 8:00am - 6:00pm 

HOSTED BY: Julia Twigger

ADDRESS: Mountain Helvellyn, Keswick, Cumbria

Map Link

Would love to get a group together to walk Helvellyn and tackle Striding Edge.

I have done this before, but with others who have orienteering skills.

Would anyone be willing to lead the group? Or help me lead? Please!

I would suggest a reasonable level of fitness and a head for heights.

We could make this a one day event... Or a weekender, depending on locations of walking group. I personally would stay over Friday and Saturday night somewhere.

Would be fabulous to get a group of us together.

I’ve signed myself up for this event and a few others have shown interest. I’m planning on running/walking/crawling would be brilliant if there are some more OYNB’ers who fancy doing this with me!

A fantastic Challenge set in England's finest coutryside. The Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it's a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves - with some stunning views enroute - before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey.

This can be done as a continuous 100km or over two days. There is also the option to do a half or quarter challenge!

ADDRESS: Dalkeith Country Park via The King's Gate, Dalkeith EH22 1ST

Looking to gather a clan of OYNBers to battle next year's Scottish Tough Mudder Classic! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 💪

(Ideally 10 or more of us as they then offer group packages & preferably the Saturday.)

Touted as "8-10 miles of mud-soaked mayhem absolutely loaded with 25 best-in-class obstacles" - apparently "Epic is an understatement"!

They even put on a wee ceilidh afterwards - okay, "entertainment, street food, craft beer [ahem*] and good times"
So... wha's wi' us? Sounds braw AF!

* Hopefully they'll cater for all 🤞
