Prospective members are more than welcome. Contact us in advance and we'll look out for you.
running, adventure racing, hiking, kayaking and caving! Beer drinking has also been known now and again... :-)
Club meets on weekends are usually within 4 to 5 hours drive from Swindon and include trips to the Mendips, Wye Valley, Gower, Peak District, Pembrokeshire, North Wales, Cornwall and The Lakes. In addition we have an annual trip to Scotland for winter mountaineering and usually a summer trip to the Alps for alpine mountaineering.
Usually about once a month on planned meets (visiting a crag, going away to North Wales, etc) but other activities crop up at weekends usually dependent upon individual members organising something. This is more frequent in the summer months when the weather is generally better.
