The Hike Committee met in a virtual meeting on 13th July 2021 and have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Longmynd Hike. We have done this in the interest of maintaining the safety of the community, the hikers and Hike staff.

In the light of a possible 3rd wave of Covid-19 in the Autumn we have decided that rather than make a late decision on whether the event could proceed it was better for for everyone's certainty to make a final decision and announcement now.

The Hike relies on the support and goodwill of people in Church Stretton, of landowners and of residents around the route. They allow us access to their privately owned land and let us use their buildings, and farmyards for our checkpoints, communications relay points and support vehicles. This decision ensures that we do not expose the community to the virus and continues the good relationship we have.

We intend to put on the Hike in 2022 over the weekend of 1st and 2nd October 2022, please check back here in January 2022 for further details.
