Challenging: Typical these would be longer walks of 6 to 8 miles in length. They may include extended climbs and descents along steep paths or flights of steps.; uneven or rocky paths with trip hazards such as exposed tree roots; Obstacles such as vertical stiles or stiles in poor condition.

AYOR principle  Out on Sunday (OOS) is, and has always been, a group of friends who enjoy walking and socialising in the countryside and attractive urban spaces. OOS takes the safety and wellbeing of members and others very seriously, for this reason walk leaders are asked to carry out a risk assessment for each walk they lead. This information is made available to walkers before each walk.  You should however bear in mind that walk leaders are in most cases just walkers like yourself, and have no formal training or qualifications.  Consequently, neither OOS nor the walk leaders can accept any liability for any loss incurred or injury suffered while taking part in any OOS activities.  By taking part you acknowledge that you do so entirely at your own risk (AYOR).

COVID-19  All legal requirements and restrictions have now been removed but we ask that you do not attend any OOS walk if you have any symptoms of Covid 19.
