THE 15TH annual Oldham Way Challenge, which takes place on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July, is precisely that.
Organised by Oldham Council Outdoor and Environmental Education, it involves a hike of approximately 40 miles spread over the two days around the borough’s boundary.
Taking in most of the Oldham Way, it starts and finishes at Daisy Nook Country Park, with Castleshaw Centre, Delph, as the end of day one and the start of day two.
This is a non-competitive event for groups, families and individuals, celebrating and enjoying this fine route around Oldham.
Experienced hill walkers can take up the challenge with the advantage of the event support, while others may like to join a more leisurely guided walk along the route.
The entry fee for the event is £6.50 (cheques made payable to Oldham Council). This includes the provision of staffed checkpoints with water, safety cover for the event and transport shuttles to and from the Castleshaw Centre.
Whether you are interested in participating as an individual, as part of a team, or with your family, the Oldham Way Challenge offers a rewarding event to get involved in this summer.
It could provide an excellent opportunity to raise money for a charity of your choice, or you can join us for all or part of the two days just to get some healthy exercise in the great outdoors.
