BUXTON to MATLOCK
I am planning a sponsored walk/hike starting from Buxton FC Silverlands to the Matlock Town Autoworld Arena on Easter Monday, 21st April 2014. Starting at about 10:00am (assuming a 7:45pm KO) the off-road route of about 25 miles includes Staden hills, King Sterndale, Deep Dale and the entire length of the Monsal Trail. The first couple of hours will be quite difficult as this includes a very steep decent into the boulder strewn Deep Dale so stout footwear is strongly recommended. There are no pubs until the Square and Compass at Darley Dale so all walkers will need to carry enough sustenance to see them through this long walk. The route does include some fantastic scenery, particularly during the first four hours.
Anyone interested in taking up this challenge should contact Malcolm Marchant, 01629 55258, otherwise please support us by sponsoring one of the intrepid volunteers, currently Stuart Briddon, Richard Poyser and Kevin Marchant have been foolish enough to show an interest, there could be some very weary supporters at the Matlock v Buxton game!
Sponsorship forms are available from Malcolm, Stuart or the club shop.
Any money raised will be donated towards ground improvements at the Autoworld Arena. Thanks in anticipation for your support.
