This year’s challenge was a 40 mile walk around Rutland. We started at around 10pm on Saturday and continued through the night, finishing at 3pm on Sunday afternoon. This works out as 18 hours allowing for the clocks going back which was fortunate as we had another hour to walk!
The walk really was a challenge and, of the 17 who started, 11 finished the entire 40 miles.
We were walking for the majority of the time besides the two well deserved pub stops, a breakfast stop and a few 5 minute breaks.
It was an experience to say the least and I did enjoy the walk besides the dark, cold, wind, rain and taking very unnecessary detours over muddy fields!
An amazing breakfast was provided by John and Ingrid Ferry which the team at Torr Waterfield are very grateful for.
This was definitely our toughest challenge to date.
We would like to thank everybody that has supported and sponsored us. The walk has raised jut over £7,500 so far for the charity Coping With Cancer.
There is still time to donate. It would be incredible if you could show some support for the team and make a donation small or large, it’s all for a great cause. Please please visit our total giving page www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/torrwaterrutland18
Thanks from all the Team.
There are lots of photos from the walk on our Facebook page but here are a few of our favourites.
