If you plan to spend time together at the end of the walk, you must follow the latest government guidance on physical distancing and group size for meeting people outside your household. The exemption that allows 30 people to attend a Ramblers group walk does not apply to group social events.
We do not recommend organising group holidays at this time. While we want to help people access the outdoors in a safe and responsible way, we don’t think its right to organise group holidays at this time.
While Ramblers group walks may be able to continue for up to 30 people, other parts of your group holiday would be subject to government restrictions on social gatherings. New restrictions may also come into place at short notice, impacting travel and the number of people or households who can meet together.
If you organise a training event, we strongly recommend choosing an outdoor location or an online meeting. Always check the current restrictions where you live, and follow the government guidelines.
You must limit numbers appropriately to ensure a safe environment, and provide a good learning experience. We recommend a maximum of 15 participants – but smaller groups may be more practical, depending on the activity.
If your training course is being organised by an external training provider, they must put suitable physical distancing and hygiene measures in place, in line with government guidance for their business.
As we gradually restart activities, the safety of our volunteers and walkers is our priority. Staff will not be delivering Ramblers Walking for Health cascade training until further notice.
If you need to find a cascade trainer to train walk leaders in your scheme please use the training calendar to find already scheduled sessions.
If there are none in your area, please use the walk finder to find another local scheme to get in touch with and see if they have any training planned that they can support you with.
