Marathon – 26 miles taking in the Wyre Forest

The Blue Riband of the routes which takes you around the whole Parish of Rock. It passes into and out of the Parishes of Pensax, Kinlet (Shropshire), Astley and Dunley, Bewdley and Ribbesford. The walk goes through about five miles of the Wyre Forest including a National Nature reserve, crosses golf courses, passes old coal mines, along delightful streams and, if the weather is good, offers exceptional views of the Clee, Clent, Abberley and Malvern Hills.

18 miles taking in the Wyre Forest

Similar to the 26 mile walk but does not include the section of the route taking in Pensax.

Half Marathon (13 miles), or 9 miles

A completely new route, a walk, jog or run through Heightington, skirting Abberley with a pub stop at The Bell at 8 miles.

Independent and guided 6 miles

A delightful  and easy walk to Heightington Village Hall with its stunning views over the Abberley Hills and where you can linger over a cup of tea. This year the route contains only seven stiles, where previously there were 24. The guided walk is lead by a trained, experienced walk leader. Each year the route varies and walkers remain entertained throughout.
