Welcome to

The Long Distance Walkers Association

The LDWA is an Association of people with the common interest of walking long distances in rural, urban, mountainous or moorland areas. By joining the LDWA, you will meet other like-minded long distance walkers and gain access to information on walking events and long distance walking routes all over the UK. Some of our members like to participate in our many challenge events, with distances ranging from 20 to 100 miles. Others like to walk along long distance paths over several days, whilst many of our members like to socialise as they walk with one of our 43 geographic groups.

Important Notice Concerning Coronavirus

Last reviewed on 29 May 2020:

The LDWA NEC COVID-19 sub-committee has reviewed the latest Government guidance relating to Scotland and England (issued on 28 May) and to Wales (issued on 29 May).

The NEC reviewed the position that now allows 6 people in England to meet, but due to the need to still maintain safety in relation to social distancing and in the interest of fairness to all members who might wish to attend a group social walk, the NEC has concluded that LDWA social walks in England cannot commence at this time.

Please be reassured that the NEC is considering how to mitigate the associated risks and is considering when social walks and challenge events might be allowed to resume. These are difficult times for all involved in the LDWA and the NEC is acutely aware of the distress that a loss of LDWA activities is causing for many of our members. We are grateful for your continued patience.

You can find this and previous updates (including links to the Government guidelines for the four nations) here.
