This is a self-guided walk along the Lantern Way, a signposted route with way markers along the route. The Lantern Way follows a route clockwise from Dursley Town Hall through Cam & Coaley to Uley and back to Dursley.  The walk has some climbs, including a climb to Uley Bury. This rural walk takes you through farmland, woodland and country lanes, conditions of footpaths, gateways and stiles will vary along the route and it may be muddy in places.
Entrants will receive a copy of the Lantern Way Walk route description leaflet, plus a pen and certificate for finishing. It is recommended that you bring a picnic lunch and plenty of drink. There will be one checkpoint and cold drink stop halfway round (please bring your own mug). Runners welcome.
Terms and conditions for entering – you need to be in good physical health to enter this walk.  The walk has some steep sections so care is needed. You may encounter some fields containing livestock. There is some road crossing and lane walking, be aware of traffic and take care.            
Participants must carry a mobile telephone and they must contact the event team if they plan to drop out for any reason. We will require contact details and a back up phone number in case needed. We will have a walker sweeping up behind.
