This time last week I shared that the total raised through the two charity walks I’ve recently taken place in with Mandy was a staggering £2,641.75. Guess I was a bit premature in using the staggering word, as it’s now just hit a really staggering £3,690.95!!!
Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us on our recent treks. Both are complete now, and thus far we have raised a staggering £2,641.75 for the two charities we are supporting! Wow… just wow…
Some brief words about the walks below – but they say a picture paints a thousand words, so I mounted a GoPro to my rucksack and took time lapse photos along the way for both walks – links below if you’d like to see more!
The South Downs Trekathon on 16th May started at the finish point of Beachy Head at 6am, where we got a coach back to the start point in Lewes.
The visibility at Beachy Head was dreadful – probably only about 20m! Thankfully by the time we set off in Lewes at 7.30am though, the sun was starting to break through and it turned into a perfect day for the walk.
Trekfest in the Brecon Beacons was on Saturday 6th June. Again the weather was a little iffy to begin with, but 10 minutes before the start the skies cleared and we were left with glorious sunshine for the whole day, even on top of Pen y Fan!
This was a circular route advertised at 29 miles, which actually turned out to be closer to 31 according to my GPS tracker (and no we didn’t get lost!!)
