Please follow the Countryside Code, outlined below, when walking across the Malvern Hills during the Challenge.

Respect other people:

  • consider the local community and other people enjoying the outdoors

  • leave gates and property as you find them and follow paths unless wider access is available

Protect the natural environment:

  • leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home

  • keep dogs under effective control

 

Enjoy the outdoors:

  • plan ahead and be prepared

  • follow advice and local signs

Please respect the local community and other people using the outdoors. Remember your actions can affect people’s lives and livelihoods.

We all have a responsibility to protect the countryside now and for future generations, so make sure you don’t harm animals, birds, plants or trees and try to leave no trace of your visit. When out with your dog make sure it is not a danger or nuisance to farm animals, horses, wildlife or other people.

Even when going out locally, it’s best to get the latest information about where and when you can go. For example, your rights to go onto some areas of open access land and coastal land may be restricted in particular places at particular times. Find out as much as you can about where you are going, plan ahead and follow advice and local signs.
