Wellington Boot 100Km

Wellington Boot

A Challenge Walk of 100km


The group has agreed to put this event on as an anytime challenge available to do from mid July to the end of September to assist members in achieving a qualifying event for the 2022 hundred.

Once the details have been finalised and the route description has been updated, more information will be issued. Entries will be via Si-entries for a nominal fee.


Object: To complete a circular route of 100km (7,200ft of climb) on foot within 26 hours starting and finishing at Wellington Rugby Club in Somerset.

 The walk includes a view of the sea (unless the weather is very overcast) and with half decent visibility even a view of Wales. The route will reach heights of over a 1000ft. It will follow the Tone valley, ascend the Quantocks, drop down to Holford, re-cross the Quantocks, go through the Brendon Hills and part of the Exmoor National Park to reach Clatworthy Reservoir, travel south through West Somerset and part of Devon, follow the Culm Valley, ascend the Blackdown Hills to reach the Wellington Monument and then return to Wellington.

The route returns to that of the original event - namely via Huish Champflower and Sampford Peverell.

We will provide a full route description but you will need to be able to read a map and follow compass bearings especially at night or in fog. The route is almost entirely covered by Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 sheet 181. 2 miles of the route is on sheet 193, 100 yards only on 182 and 100yds only on 192. About ¾ of the route is on Explorer 128 and the rest on 140 and OL9.

 Please note that Cornwall and Devon LDWA will not provide support for this event it is completely self-supporting. Please see the event rules and provision of evidence
