General Advice 

All walkers should carry day sacks containing waterproofs, spare clothing, adequate food and drink. For those participating on Moderate, Challenging and Extreme walks, walking boots MUST be worn with appropriate waterproof clothing. We strongly advise that you do not wear jeans. Pre – booking is essential for all walks.

The Festival organisers take your safety seriously and have a duty of care towards participants. However, festival goers are ultimately responsible for their own safety and those taking part in the Sperrins & Killeter Walking Festival agree to do so at their own risk. The organisers reserve the right to alter or cancel any route. The organisers are not liable for accidents caused by failure to follow directions as communicated by the organisers, thefts and/or damage to property.

Every effort will be made to make this a safe, enjoyable and memorable event. An inadequately equipped person could affect the safety and enjoyment of the whole group, so we reserve the right to refuse participation to inadequately equipped individuals.
