Join the LOROS Walking Group

From weekly local walks, to some longer days and 3-4 walking trips away each year, the LOROS Walking Group are a friendly group with something suitable for all ages and abilities, all at the same time as raising money to support LOROS too. Whilst getting some good miles in, their walks always involve a cake stop!
During 2023 the group have raised over £20,000 for LOROS!

2024 walking trips

UK Three Peaks
Saturday 3rd August to Friday 9th August

The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales. Many rush the journey trying to climb them all within 24hrs, but this challenge will offer you a more leisurely attempt over the course of a week, allowing time to properly visit each of the different areas whilst still reaching the top of these magnificent peaks.

The total walking distance is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3064 metres (10,052ft) - twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance. After travelling by minibus up to Fort William on Saturday, we will climb Ben Nevis on Sunday.  Monday we will travel to the Lake District, have a short walk & on Tuesday climb Scafell Pike. Wednesday travel to Snowdonia, have a short walk and on Thursday climb Snowdon. Friday will be the return travel to Leicester.

The cost to participate will be dependent on the numbers of walkers signing up and there will be an additional ask for sponsorship to raise money for LOROS also. The peaks climbed include:

  • Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)

  • Scafell Pike, in England (978m)

  • Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m)

Day Walks
In addition to the longer treks, the LOROS walking group organises regular day walks both in and around Leicestershire, as well as slightly further afield in some beautiful locations such as Dovedale or the Malvern Hills. The group are also currently exploring the Leicestershire Trig Point Pillars. All are welcome to join and the group operates a mailing list via email for anyone wanting to be kept up to date with upcoming walks.
