5 Day Challenge

Take the "5 Day Challenge"

Stop Press  Jon Meadows from Shirley 41 Club and his son Ben have completed the 5 Day Challenge in March.  It was wet underfoot but they managed it raising £1600 for the RNLI - well done to you both.

5 Day Challenge MapThe MILLENNIUM WAY - a fabulous 100 mile long distance trail in the Heart of England. The trail offers the opportunity for a diversity of experiences:

Each Shire county has its own unique characteristics - Worcestershire with its rolling countryside - Warwickshire still boasts the Forest of Arden - skirt briefly through the delights of Solihull Borough with its charming villages and imposing castles -- enjoy the delights of Northamptonshire shrouded in history

Truly a walk of a lifetime and all yours in 5 days!

Planning - Getting there and getting home

Both ends of the walk are serviced well by Bus and Rail connections.

Along the way

We have visited, but cannot vouch for, all the establishments identified in our accommodation page, many are adjacent to the route, but where there is a significant distance from the finish to overnight accommodation we have identified local taxi companies who will be pleased to transport you.
