The Moray Way is a 95 mile circular walk made up of the Dava Way, between Forres and Grantown-on-Spey, the Speyside Way between Grantown-on-Spey and Garmouth, and the Moray Coastal Trail between Garmouth and Forres. All 3 of these paths are a part of Scotland's Great Trails. The object of this event is to walk the Moray Way in 5 easy stages using the various options available. This event is not a guided walk, but is monitored by the event organizer as you make your way around it.
The challenge can be achieved by either using the park and ride facility, or by backpacking the route using campsites and hostelries (Hotels Guest Houses and B&Bs) along the route. There is a 'baggage transfer' service to support the event if you don't want to carry a heavy pack along the route. If you don’t want to do the whole route, but fancy doing just a single day, then you can use the Park and Ride service and complete just one or more sections of the challenge which vary in length from 17 to 21 miles.
The 5 Day Challenge is aimed at experienced long distance walkers who can achieve at least 2.5 mph for 5 consecutive days. The walk is unguided and participants are expected to be able to follow a way-marked path without a guide and at their own risk. The Moray Way is mainly on wide level paths but there are some sections on public roads and over rough ground where additional care should be taken.
