Kit List

Listed below is the basic kit I suggest you bring with you. Due to the nature of the sessions there is more stopping and starting than a normal walk, so it is worth bringing extra layers.  Do feel free to contact me before the session if you have any concerns or queries regarding kit.

  • Walking boots/trail shoes (trainers not recommended)
  • Walking socks
  • Rucksack (20 to 30 litres)
  • Base layer (Cotton not recommended)
  • Warm layers eg. Fleece/insulated jacket
  • Walking trousers/ leggings or shorts (NOT jeans)

  • Water – 1-2 litres
  • Packed lunch (Day sessions only)
