Why, When and Where
Why – Simply put, because I am determined to and I will complete it. We are raising money to provide support for people recovering from brain injuries and their carers.
This is a challenge that both Ian and I need to train for and a new way for us to continue the motivation of my recovery.
We are walking continuously with a rest day here and there, but we will have to take everyday slower than then average walker. However, more days will offer a perfect opportunity and chance to see Great Britain when it’s not raining!
When – We hoped to start after the rains and before the mozzie season in Scotland. We set off on the 6th May 2019, but this is the UK and even though the snow had stopped we did have hail!
Where – We walked north to south (downhill) from John O’Groats, Scotland to pick up the Pennine Way, onto the Cotswold Way and followed tracks through Devon to end up at Land’s End, Cornwall. For more information on the route click here
