Type of Walk

'The annual 100 mile event is the LDWA's flagship event. Held every year in a different part of the country, to coincide with the Late May Bank Holiday, up to 500 people gather to walk 100 miles in 48 hours. In order to enter all these people will have completed a qualifying event beforehand. The first 100 mile event held was the Downsman 100 in 1973. Since then, with the exception of 2001 when foot and mouth closed the countryside, there has been an event every year.'
