The club runs walks most Saturdays and Sundays throughout the University Semesters. The exact locations are in our emails or the This Week section of this site. The walks will generally range from 8 to 13 miles and we try to have an easier and harder walk every weekend. We always welcome new people on our walks whether you're a member or not. As always we only ask that you turn up with sensible footwear and enough food and water to see you through the day.
Don't worry if you're too busy to come walking sometimes, you can still join us for our brilliant weekly socials. These are every thursday at 8:30pm at various pubs. There's often a big turn-out so this is a great chance to meet lots of new people.
The club organises a veraiety of trips during the year, involving a train or minibus journey to somewhere nice and/or hilly and a couple of nights in a bunkbarn or hostel. Previously we have gone places such as the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia. These trips are a little more strenuous, but you don't have to be super fit! Occasionally we may even go for a week somewhere a bit more exotic, more information about our next trip can be found on the Upcoming Trips page!
The Alumni Foundation
The University of Sheffield Alumni Foundation is delighted to provide sponsorship to Sheffield University Walking Club. The Alumni Foundation exists to channel the donations of Sheffield alumni (former students), staff, and friends of the University, into projects involving current students. We would like to thank the University’s supporters for their generosity, which has made tremendous strides in enhancing the student experience. More information about the Foundation can be found at: www.shef.ac.uk/alumni/foundation
