Statistics for the Moderate and Advanced Walks

(the Wednesday Walks are too complex and variable so are not included, but add an additional 44 walk-days every year, with an average participant rate of 35 each week, which has been consistent since January 2004!)

These statistics are calculated from the map routes followed.  The total ascent represents the overall height gained over the walk and does not indicate the maximum elevation above sea-level reached.  These figures do not include the Easy walks as there are too many people and the routes are too varied on any given day.  In 2005 we started an additional series of more challenging and interesting walks compared to those on Wednesdays.  These are now carried out in the Moderate Walk programme on Thursdays.  During 2007 BaDNS took on responsibility for running the Wednesday Easy Stride for Life Walks and then started up an additional series of Moderate Walks allowing the original advanced (Next Steps) walks held on Mondays and latterly Tuesdays to become more adventurous and strenuous.  In late summer of 2011 the stakes were upped again on Tuesdays, with the introduction of some Very Strenuous walks.  These are further away and comprise demanding multi-Munro bagging days, alternating with the 'standard' Strenuous Tuesday walks.  At the same time we started multi-day trips, wild camping trips and more advanced mountaineering activities.
