The Saunter is an annual walking/running event along footpaths and bridleways taking entrants into the Yorkshire Dales to see some picturesque rural villages and hamlets and swathes of intoxicating countryside. It is organized and run by the Rotary Club of Settle with help from members of the local community. The longer routes have checkpoints with light refreshments along the way and a hot savoury meal is provided at the end. Badges and certificates upon completion are all included in the entry fee. Free car parking is provided.
There are three routes on offer accommodating a wide range of abilities and all can be run or walked:
