We'll keep you updated every Tuesday with all the details of what we're up to.

Alternatively, you can check out our walks and events and trips pages for all the details at any time.

Who are we?

We are a bunch of (mostly) University of Sheffield students who really love walking in the Peak District and all places hilly. Anyone is welcome on our walks and we'll always do our best to accommodate you.

What do we get up to?

Weekly walks

The club runs walks most Saturdays and Sundays throughout the University semesters. The exact locations are in our weekly emails.

The walks will generally range from 6 to 13 miles and we try to have an easier and harder walk every weekend.

We always welcome new people on our walks whether you're a member or not. As always, we only ask that you turn up with sensible footwear and enough food and water to see you through the day.

Socials

Don't worry if you're too busy to come walking sometimes, you can still join us for our brilliant weekly socials.

These are every Thursday at various places around Sheffield. There's often a big turn-out so it's a great chance to meet lots of new people.

We run both alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials.

For information on these, keep an eye on our weekly email or our Walks and events page.

Trips

The club generally organises three trips a year, our 'Fresher's Trip' in October, an Easter trip, and our summer trip which takes place at the end of the academic year.

Anyone is very welcome to come on these - we generally stay in a bunk barn or similar accommodation for a couple of nights.

Previous trips in the past have been to the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Snowdonia.

If you're interested in these, keep an eye on our emails or our Trips page.

Hi All!


I am the new Club Captain, Tom. I will be introducing myself alongside the rest of the committee in an upcoming email and social media posts.


Speaking of the committee, we are currently missing people to fill the Safety and Training Officer positions on the Executive Committee. This is your chance to join a friendly committee and help organise one of the biggest social sports clubs at Sheffield!


This year we are splitting the role into a shared position so we are looking for two people to join us!


Role description:


The safety and training officer is the person that ensures that all our club members stay safe on the events we hold. This involves performing the necessary risk assessments, reviewing the club's good practice safety guidelines, liaising with the Sport Sheffield safety adviser, and ensuring that safe practice is followed by members of the club at all times.


They are also responsible for training new walks leaders of the club by organising and taking prospective leaders on the necessary training exercises.


It is recommended that this role is carried out by an existing Grade 1 or 2 walks leader.


Please apply here: https://forms.gle/oAHkdHxgYXXavLHW7


Applications are open until Monday 8th August 2022. Voting will then be open until Thursday 11th, when the EGM will be held.


Cheers!
