Taking on Trailwalker 2014

As I mentioned in my previous post, this year is a busy one for me with loads of projects and events coming up. The biggest of these challenges is going to be Trailwalker. Trailwalker is 62 mile walk across the South Downs, that’s a frankly ridiculous distance but it is also to be completed in less than 30 hours. Which means no sleep!

I had experience of the event in 2012 when some work friends completed it and I attended as part of their support crew (making food, filling water bottles, handing over clean socks etc etc). This year I have decided to take on the challenge myself and on July 26th I’ll be starting out on the long long long walk.

Training is already well under way and myself and my team mates have a good few miles under our belts already but plenty more is going to be needed if we are going to make it.

Of course I am not just doing this for the fun of it, the event was started by and is run by the Ghurkas and it raises money for the Ghurka Welfare Trust and Oxfam. (Can you see where this is going?)

Our aim is to raise £3000 in total and anything towards that total will be very gratefully received.
