The 2019 challenge.


My local hills around Ilfracombe are challenging to some and I have started to walk them as often as I can.  All my training is getting added to my View-ranger account. 

I need to increase my own health and fitness. Please bare in mind I am walking with a trained dancer and an out door fanatic who are both 30 years younger than myself.

The highest local hill, at its highest is a staggering 120 meters above sea level.


Ben Nevis is a whopping 1345 meters above sea level, which is where the walk starts!

Tuesday 23 rd July till 31st July 2019, the three of us will leave our homes to meet in Glen Nevis to start this epic expeditions.

The aim is to walk and climb the following peaks.

1) Scotland – Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the area.

2) Carlise- The Once Brewed section of Hadrians Wall, the busiest section and most popular, the one with the tree from the Robin Hood film of the 80’s.
3) Cumbria – Scarfell Pike
4) Yorkshire – The National Three Peaks. A beautiful section of the dales with a staggering 25 kilometres and three peaks achieved within 14 hours.
5) Wales – Snowdonia, the beautiful popular mountain range.

We aim is complete the 5 climbs and walks within the week. Laura is currently our only driver, we will need to consider the epic 1800 kilometres of driving!

Item 5 is the only walk that we are looking at alternative dates as this may be one walk too mrany to fit into our epic expedition. We are looking at either completing it in February weather permitting or later in 2019.
