Message from the organising committee:

The hike documents, and offline booking forms are now available on this site. Sorry for the administration problems causing the delays.

It has been decided for 2018 to permit all sections to carry a mobile phone. The penalties for using a phone to contact anyone else other than hike control remain.

It has been decided that this year (2018) is the last that we will run the hike on maps of a scale of 1:25000. Next year we will return to the 1:50000 scale. It is important to practice with maps of this scale.

The forum for you to place your views and questions about the hike is still available, please use the link in the menu at the top of the page to access this.
