Every year, the Exmoor Rotary Club holds The Rotary Exmoor Challenge. The Challenge is an amiable competitive walk between Districts 1175 and 1200 through Exmoor countryside, for a either a 10 mile or 5 mile route for those who prefer a shorter walk.

District 1200 has won the shield by a narrow margin over the past two years.

The Exmoor Rotary Challenge will be taking place on 10th April 2016.  The route this year will start from the Morebath Village Hall Morebath.   There will be refreshments at the village hall as usual.  There are some excellent country side views as you go around either walk.

The Challenge:

  1. Either a 10 mile or 5 mile route for those who prefer a shorter walk.
  2. Every Rotarian, their family, and friends completing either walk earns points for their District. The District with the most points wins the Challenge Shield for a year.
  3. The walks also raise money from sponsorship and the entry fees for The Children’s Hospice South West, which exists almost entirely from donations.

The Walks:

For 2016 we will start and finish from Morebath Village Hall Registration between 9-11am and everyone is expected to finish by 4pm.

Before and after either walk, Exmoor Rotary Club will serve complimentary refreshments in the Village Hall.

PROPER WALKING SHOES/BOOTS ARE ADVISED

The entry fee is £7 per individual. No fee for entrants under 18.
