Fastpacking for Beginners, Guildford, Saturday, 23. March 2019

An introduction to fastpacking, hosted by Rick Pearson of Runner's World and Lily Dyu, author of Faspacking (Cicerone, 2018).
Fastpacking is the middle ground between hiking and trail running – and the North Downs is the perfect practice ground for it.
The event will take place along a beautiful 14-mile stretch of the North Downs Way, beginning at Guildford and ending at Box Hill. En route, we'll take in the sandy slopes of St Martha's church, a camping demonstration and some outstanding views of the Surrey Hills. The day will include:

Advice on the best places in the UK and beyond for fastpacking
Tips on how to stay safe while moving quickly in wild places
A wild camping demo
Information on how to pack light: what you'll need and what you won't
Tips on the best stretches of the North Downs Way for fastpacking
The chance to enjoy a pint at the Surrey Hills Brewery at the finish in Denbies
