I Want Go For a Walk, Not Invade Poland!*

This was a comment from a walker following a recent walk and I will try to explain how it arose.

One aspect of being a successful walking group is the sometimes high numbers attending walks, especially on a Thursday and this brings its own issues.

With a large group there is a wide variation in the speed that individuals naturally walk at which leads to stringing out of the group. When this occurs walk leaders should should bear in mind the need for catch ups. 

I would suggest a simple rule as to when catch ups are required: if you can’t see the back marker then think about a pause till you can.

Also think about the speed the group needs to go at to complete the walk. Plan walks that can be completed in reasonable time and speed and if running slightly late don’t up the pace, it would be better to ring the pub and let them know.

*I think what this means is I want a bit of exercise not go on a route march.
