ClueQuest is a family fun form of orienteering which involves you going out for walks and solving clues along the way. We now have two clubs for you to join. The 25 club which launched in April 2021 – where there are 25 clues to solve which are scattered along 5 walks. Each walk has 5 clues to solve.
From August 2021 we will be launching the 50 club. This means you will have another 5 walks, each walk will have 5 clues to solve, another 25 clues to solve in total which means you can then join the 50 ClueQuest club.
Once you have your cluebook, you need to decide which walk you are going to do, download the accompanying instructions (from below or from the Malvern Walks app) and then off you go to find the answers to the clues. Watch our video on YouTube to see what happens on a ClueQuest challenge.

Is there a recommended route?
The ClueQuest routes have all been mapped for you, so you don’t need to worry about plotting your own route. Simply choose which walk you would like to do (see above) and make sure you have the right set of clues ready.
How many clues are there?
There are now 50 clues to solve across 10 walks. Each walk has 5 clues to solve. Start with the 25 club first and once you’ve collected all 25 clues you can then move onto the 50 club.
How far from the paths are the clues?
All clues can be found or seen within close proximity to all footpaths and bridleways.
Who is ClueQuest aimed at?
Although ClueQuest is aimed at children and families it can also be taken part by adults alike. We have had some local companies do it as a team building activity.
Where are the nearest toilets?
You will need to check which toilets are open in line with government guidance following Covid 19 outbreak.
What equipment will I need to find the photoboxes?
A compass, OS Explorer maps 190 and 204. Both of which are available to borrow from local libraries for free or can be purchased online or in local shops. We also recommend the app GPS OS. You will also need a notepad and pencil or your phone to collect the answers to your clues.
What do I do when I find a clue?
When you get to a clue simply write it down somewhere safe.
What do I do when I’ve collected all 25 and 50 answers?
Our RouteQuest activity is back by popular demand. It can be done as a run or walk or multiple runs or walks, you choose.
There are 10 checkpoints for you to find which are all in and around Malvern. You have as long as you need to find these checkpoints, there is no time limit. You simply decide which checkpoints you are going to walk or run to, plan your own route and then set off to find them.
It’s similar to our ClueQuest activity but different in as much as you have to create your own routes in order to find the checkpoints. Once you’ve found all 10 checkpoints you submit your selfies to prove you have visited them and then we will send you your well earned medal.
It’s just £3 to enter per person.
