Spartan Red SoxLocation: County Antrim
Formed in 1979, The Spartan Red Sox Walking Club, organise day walks, week and weekend trips in Ireland, sometimes further afield, and social events.
There is a walk on most Saturdays and Wednesdays throughout the year, organised and led by a club member.
There are over 100 members, current subscription being £25 per individual. Membership is not available to those under 18 years of age. Members are fully covered by our Civil Liability insurance policy.
Visitors are welcome and may, under this policy, walk with us for TWO walks only. If they then wish to continue, we expect entrance into full membership by payment of the annual subscription to the Treasurer.
We are members of the Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs and the Mountaineering Council of Ireland. Our annual subscription entitles members to current copies of the Irish Mountain Log-the journal of the Mountaineering Council of Ireland.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure safety, each person takes part entirely at their own risk. Neither the club nor its members can be held responsible for loss, injury or damage, howsoever sustained. Each individual MUST come properly equipped for outdoor activity. Walking boots are ESSENTIAL. Clothing needs to be warm and water and windproof. Bring a rucksack, packed lunch, hot drink and water on all walks. PLEASE do not bring a dog-we often walk in sheep country and wish to maintain good relations with the farming community.
