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.

The LDWA has continued to monitor Her Majesty's Government advice in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All challenge events, social walks and other formal LDWA business organised by any of the local groups have been cancelled until further notice.

On 23 March, the Prime Minister issued a statement ordering everyone to stay at home with a limited number of exceptions. It included instructions about exercise. Full details can be found at

We hope that everybody in the LDWA understands the seriousness that the United Kingdom finds itself in and urges all members to be responsible.
