Eeekkk what was I thinking of signing up for this! BUT I know a few people who have done this and lived to tell the tale. It will be hard – but that’s why it’s called an Ultra Challenge.
I will be walking continuously from London to Brighton at the end of May 2022. You could do a camping stopover midway, but I thought I might not want to start again once I got up. Plus camping is not my thing so would rather carry on walking (I may regret saying that)
I wanted to do this in the past but was always put off when I told people I wanted to do it when they said things like…….
- Are you mad?
- You know its over 60 miles don’t you?
- Why? Just why?
This time I just signed up – and have a few others I know also doing this one, and others I know doing the same challenge in other places on other dates.
I will take my Nordic Walking poles as my intention is to Nordic Walk most of it. Check out my Nordic Walking blog
I will have a lot of training to do so will be updating you on my training and progress. I need to get some trail shoes to do my training in so will be checking those out soon.
The Ultra Challenge events are for 25k, 50k or 100k and you can run, jog or walk them.
I will update you on my shoes and training soon.
