Lord Crawshaw Memorial Walk

Lord Crawshaw Memorial Walk


Lt Col The Lord Crawshaw of Aintree O.B.E., T.D., D.L., was a great friend and fellow walker of Llanwrtyd Wells Walking Club. This annual memorial walk has been organised in his honour to recognise his contribution to walking in Wales

Participants follow one of 3 waymarked routes - 10,15 or 25 miles - all starting from the Llanwrtyd square. There is a badge and certificate for all who finish plus spectacular scenery, good company, and the warmest of welcomes from Llanwrtyd community.

Part of our Annual Challenge Walks Programme, this event is in memory of Lt.Col The Lord Crawshaw of Aintree. Dick Crawshaw was a great friend, fellow walker of Llanwrtyd Wells Walking Club and a past President of the Long Distance Walking Association.

He established a world non-stop walking record of 255.8 miles in 1972. Our walk does not attempt to challenge that record but offers 3 different length routes through the spectacular scenery surrounding Llanwrtyd Wells.

For this winter walk entrants must be properly equipped and carry survival gear. Online entries close 7 days before the event, but you can enter on the day for a surcharge.
