Dorset 100 Marshals’ Walk

The Dorset group of the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) is delighted to be hosting the annual hundred mile challenge walk over the Bank Holiday weekend of 28th to 30th May 2016. Dorset is the county of Thomas Hardy, of his Egdon Heath, of ancient Iron Age hill-forts, drove roads and ridgeways, of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, thatched cottages and picture-postcard villages. We visit all of these on our walk. We hope that walkers, their families and friends will enjoy all that Dorset has to offer – including our warm hospitality.

Charity Walk Course

The marshals' walk will take place on the Early Spring Bank Holiday, from Saturday 30th April to Monday 2nd May 2016. It is only open to LDWA members who will marshal the main event.

  • The walk starts and finishes at the Upwey & Broadwey Memorial Hall, Victoria Avenue, Upwey, Weymouth DT3 5NG. Grid reference SY670840
  • The checkpoint at Briantspuddle on the main event is replaced with a checkpoint at Tolpuddle.
  • There is no checkpoint at Dewlish, but a full checkpoint at Milton Abbas.
  • The route is changed to accommodate these differences. It's very slightly shorter than the main event (but still more than 100 miles!)

The route and checkpoints will be described in more detail later in the year.
