Mr Nigel Whiteside , 203 Dunluce Ave, BELFAST, BT9 7AX

Spartan Red Sox Walking Club

 

Location

Services Offered

Formed in 1979, we organise day walks, week and weekend trips in Ireland (sometimes further afield), and social events. The club organises the Mourne Seven Sevens challenge event each August, which draws an international entry to the mountains.

There are over 100 members, current subscription being £13 per individual (£18 per couple). Membership is not available to those under 18 years of age.

There is a walk on most Saturdays throughout the year, organised and led by a club member. Information about a particular event can be obtained from this leader.

Visitors who intend to walk with us should contact the leader on the Wed/Thurs evening beforehand. When using shared transport, we expect members to contribute to transport costs.

Each individual MUST come properly equipped for outdoor activity. Walking boots are ESSENTIAL. Clothing needs to be warm, water and windproof. Bring a rucksack, packed lunch, hot drink and water on all walks.

PLEASE do not bring a dog - we often walk in sheep country and wish to maintain good relations with the farming community.

We are members of the Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs and the Mountaineering Council of Ireland. Our annual subscription entitles members to current copies of the Irish Mountain Log-the journal of the M.C.I.

Members are fully covered by our Civil Liability insurance policy. Visitors are welcome and may, under this policy, walk with us for TWO walks only. If they then wish to continue, we expect entrance into full membership by payment of the annual subscription to the Treasurer.

Frequency of Walks: Saturday weekly (Wednesday evening during summer)

Degree of difficulty: moderate/strenuous
