A very brief history.Mid Ulster Walking Club was founded in the Autumn of 1989, and has been in existence for almost 30 years. The first outing took place in September 1989. A few experienced walkers and a number of "novices" started from Downhill on the coast of County Londonderry and headed upwards along Bishop's Road towards the cliffs of Binevenagh. All returned some 10 miles later fired with enthusiasm.The main motivation and organisation in the early days came from Trevor Mackay, Eric Ferguson and Jack Kerr (Jack and Trevor are pictured opposite). Within a short time numbers built up to 30, and over the years membership has gradually increased to almost 100,including walkers from Belfast, Larne, Antrim, Omagh and Magherafelt as well as Dungannon and Cookstown.In 2008 walks were extended to include alternate Thursdays.This fulfilled an obvious need, and now, in 2019 , Thursdays often attract over 20 walkers. M.U.W.C. helped run 'Sperrintrek' walks in conjunction with Cookstown District Council in the past -a highly successful venture.
