Recently I made the decision to walk a similar distance with as much height gain as possible matching the day four of our “Epic Expedition” whilst staying close to my home.
Day four – The Yorkshire Three Peaks – https://www.threepeakschallenge.uk/yorkshire-three-peaks-challenge/route
The reason behind this walk was to help me gain confidence that I can manage the distance and get up the next day to complete another walk. Our expedition takes us to complete both Nation and Yorkshire three peaks (six peaks in total) plus walk a distance of the famous Hadrian Wall “Steel Rigg to Sycamore Gap” and all within 7 days.
The aim of the challenge is going to help me clear some of my desired walks, get over the anxiety that I am pressured into thinking I cannot do this type of thing either with a group or on my own. Most importantly raise funds and awareness about the RNIB a charity and resource that is close to my heart.
I have added a few photos of my recent training walk which was to walk 43 kilometers (25 miles) within 10 hours climbing a total of 2248 meters (higher than Ben Nevis) at an average pace of 4.5k. I’ve added the route to my ViewRanger account and would encourage others to compete this tough challenge.
This short video hopefully shows how amazing the steps towards Watermouth Cove look.
