Tips for planning your route

  • Choose a distance that works for you, whether it’s a beautiful hike or even in your back garden, this is your walk, you’re in charge.
  • Stay local. Organise something nearby and explore the best of your local area. Do you have any scenic parks or countryside near to where you live?
  • Keep it simple - you could plan a circular route, starting and finishing back at your home, with your own finish line party to celebrate.
  • Use online route planning resources. There are lots of websites to help you find great local walking routes. Use these to help you plan your Banham Marsden March at Home. We recommend National Trails, Walking Britain or Ordnance Survey for ready-made routes.
