WAY walkers strike gold

July 2019

Congratulations to the Walk this WAY team who between them walked nearly 700km on Saturday over the Chiltern Hills – and raised a staggering £12,000 for WAY.

“We were rather lucky with the weather for most of the day with the almost permanent drizzle helping to cool us down rather than hinder us,” said one of the Walk this WAYers, Ed Spooner. “We only got caught in some proper rain showers, enough to don our raincoats, a couple of times during the day.”

“The terrain was hilly at times and slippery and sticky at others, especially when going through a corn field where it felt our trainers were being sucked off of our feet!” he said.

“Highlights included Danish pastries at the first stop, pick and mix at the penultimate stop (it’s the little things that help spur you on!), the finish line where people you’ve never met cheering you on to finish, the medal, and above everything else the camaraderie between those taking part.”

The team of WAY Members Without Children (WAY WOCS), spurred on by Pardeep Robinson, enjoyed the 50Km challenge so much that they are planning to walk from London to Brighton next year. Stay tuned for Walk this WAY part 2…
