The Rutland Round kick starts the first week of the Walking, Cycling and Outdoor Festival covering 65 miles over 7 days. Walk the county boundary, occasionally delving in to see beautiful market towns and Rutland Water. Whether you would like to take part on one day or the whole week, please book your place by following the instructions below.

As the Rutland Round is a circular walk and is completed over 7 days, each day starts at a new location. We arrange transport for each day to pick you up from the car park and drop you off at the start point of the walk. The idea is you then complete that section of the walk and finish back at your car. If you would like to use our transport, please meet at all of the locations listed below by 9.00am. A small fee is charged per day to cover transport costs.

We understand not everyone will feel comfortable about sharing a minibus therefore whether you would like to access our transport or arrange your own, please can you let us know in the booking form below.

Please note all walkers need to be able to cope with stiles and need to wear suitable footwear and clothing (walking boots or strong footwear are essential). Dogs are welcome on the walks but need to be kept under close control and you must be able to lift them over difficult stiles. Please note the minibus doesn't allow dogs therefore alternative transport will need to be made. Please also bring your own refreshments.
