All walkers are briefed before the walk not to walk alone.
Walkers under 18 must have consent from a parent or guardian to walk, and an emergency contact number must be given on the young person’s registration form.
Walkers under 16 are only permitted to walk in the care of a responsible adult. The adult must be named on the young person’s registration form.
If a young person is injured during the walk then the responsible adult must remain with the young person until appropriate help arrives or is provided.
If the young person is under 16 then a responsible adult must stay with the injured walker until appropriate help arrives or is provided. If at this point the friend wishes to continue the walk, they should not continue alone.
