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 8 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.

EGM

The SUWC is now holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) as the COVID Officer role is open.

Being on the committee, you will get to decide how the club is run and help out with everything from our usual weekly walks and socials to our exciting trips. It is a lot of fun, highly rewarding, and of course helps strengthen your teamwork, leadership, communication and organisational skills - all of which look great on your CV.

We are again using our tried and tested online EGM method!

Covid Officer:

The covid officer ensures that club activities are within covid guidelines as set by the government, the university, and relevant national governing bodies. Information on the restrictions should be readily available for members.
