Join the staff hill walking group

Join MMU Sport’s staff hill walking group on their adventures outdoors this year. With a number of walks on offer varying in difficulty and length, there’s a walk for you. Whether you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, or you’ve always fancied yourself as the next Ray Mears, there are walks for people of all interests and abilities.

The group brings together staff from all across the university and is a great walk to kickstart a healthier 2017.

All you need to bring is some sensible walking boots, appropriate clothing, a rucksack, a packed lunch and plenty of water.

Walks start at £8.50 depending on the activities involved, and transport is always provided. We’re very excited to be taking on the Yorkshire Peaks Challenge in June and would love our walkers to join us.

“It was challenging enough to be enjoyable and a brilliant introduction to the great outdoors.”

“The hillwalking trip was a great experience with friendly people from all around the University. It was such a good opportunity to meet new people and explore a new place, even the rain didn’t dampen our moods!”

“Overall very enjoyable and uplifting, and a pleasure to share my love of the outdoors with likeminded people.”
