The Sheffield 40s Walking Group is a part of the Ramblers' Association operated entirely by its members for and on behalf of its members. Although we are based in Sheffield we have members from many of the surrounding counties as well. Basically, if you can get to the walks then you can join us. Although we are technically a "40+" group, you can show up whatever age you are (providing you are over 18). As long as you have a younger frame of mind you should fit in.
You are welcome to come along and try us out on a couple of day walks. Choose a walk from our walks programme and text the walk leader to let them know you are coming and that you are new. If you are not sure about your fitness or the level of difficulty, call the walk leader for advice.
After you have come on a couple of walks to try us out you will need to join the Ramblers Association if you want to keep coming. This is for insurance purposes and also because they fund the group via a contribution from central funds. Note that you must be a member of the Ramblers Association to come on weekends away. Again, this is an insurance requirement.

Participation of these walks and events will be in consideration of joining the Ramblers Association and selecting Sheffield 40s as your home group (Group Code SD52). If you are already a member of the Ramblers Association it doesn't matter if you have already specified a different group, or didn't specify one at all, and you don't need to do anything more to join us. But if you do end up mainly walking with us, rather than your old group, we would be grateful if you would "change your allegiances" to us..
