And we’re off…

I completed my first week of training yesterday with a 12 mile (19k) walk from Seton Sands to Meadowbank. It took me 3hrs and 20mins which I’m happy with considering it rained most of the way!

The walk consisted of a stretch of the John Muir Way, from Seton Sands to Musselburgh, and then along the promenade to Portobello finishing up with a walk along the road to Meadowbank.

I think John Muir and I are going to become close friends over the coming weeks!

Kilt Walk

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

The Tartan Army Children Charity are asking supporters to walk 26 miles to raise money for disadvantaged children in Scotland and overseas.

The main walk is from Hampden Park to Loch Lomond, however a few of us have decided to make it more of a challenge and walk from Glen Coe to Ben Nevis on Saturday 17th April. This involves a 26 mile hike which will take around 16hrs as we climb to over 8200ft and include summiting The Devils Staircase and Ben Nevis!
