Please say NO to Trailblaze


Natural England is finally evaluating the installation of Trailblaze boxes to advertise the scheme for timing extreme runners. We believe that this commercialisation of the National Trails is wrong, and that public money has been wasted in setting it up. If you want to know more, please visit this website. Better still, please consider signing the petition. The deadline for evidence is 7 September, and if you can sign soon, it will make a real difference. It doesn't matter where in the world you live, if you care about the outdoor environment your opinion counts. Signing up takes under a minute. If you can't remember if you have already signed, please try it: the system will alert you if your email has already been subscribed.

Free Compeed, for suggested new titles


We have some exciting new titles for release in 2013, but we also welcome ideas from subscribers. To be suitable, a route should make for about a week's-worth of adventurous hiking, in a country in which we already have existing titles and can more easily sell books. If you have a good idea, please email your suggestion to us before the 15th of September.

We have three packs of Compeed blister protection to give away for the best suggestions (medium size, worth £5-6). Even if you never need this magical stuff, carry a pack and you may make a friend for life by sharing it with a fellow hiker.
