Centurions Social Events  - Join us on a short walk
A couple of times a year a few Centurions, along with friends and family, embark on a much shorter walk to discover new urban areas or bits of the English countryside.

Next up is...
Epping Forest - 6 miles 19th Octiber 2019
We will meet at Loughton rail station at 10am for a 6 miles' stroll around Epping Forest.  The walk will be led by local resident Richard Howard and conclude with a visit to a tea room, back near Loughton High Street.
Toilets are available at the station (Central Line), which has an NCP car park - cost for Saturday is £3.
Any questions, phone Steve Kemp on 07860-617899
Family members and friends are very welcome!.  It's an enjoyable social walk - definitely not a race!  It's also an opportunity for local Essex/Home Counties' race walking scene to come together for an enjoyable social day out.
Loughton Rail Station post code is IG10 4PD.   Bus routes to Loughton Station : 20 (Walthamstow Central-to-Debden taking in Leyton/Whipps Cross/Woodfrod Green), 167 (Ilford-to-Loughton Station taking in Gants Hill/BarkingsideGrange Hill/Chigwell/Buckhurst Hill) & 397 (Debden-to-Crooked Billet taking in Buckhurst Hill/Woodford Wells/Chingford)

Why social walk?
In November 2011, our Centenary year, several Centurions, took part in the Hadrians Wall walk. It was a very informal walk over a weekend and proved very to be a successful event.
And so, this was the very beginning of the Centurion Social Walks!
Since then, there have been several social walks - in various locations and of varying distances for Centurions, friends and family to meet up and enjoy a good day out.
Our original aspirations were walks of 50k...and indeed our 2012 social walk was 60km.
Since then, other walks have been very much shorter. And in the winter months - much shorter still as we need to take account of daylight hours!

Have you any favourites walks to share? Or have ideas of what would make a great social walk?
Steve Kemp is the Centurions Social Secretary/Social Walks Coordinator who will put forward suggestions for our social walks.
So do get in touch with Steve and tell him your ideas. Steve's contact details opposite.
