Part 1 Coast to Coast

Coast to Coast Update

Gutted to be writing this but, having crossed two national parks, and covered 110 miles over 5 days of relentless walking, we have decided to pause our challenge.

A combination of injury within the team and the current temperatures across Yorkshire lead to a lot of soul searching as we reached Richmond last night. It became apparent that it would not be possible to achieve our target of reaching Robin Hood’s Bay within our stated timescale of 7 nights (8 days) as the pace we were maintaining, in our condition, was becoming reckless and exposing us to unacceptable levels of risk amidst a level three extreme heat warning.

We were loathe to introduce rest days or reduce the walking miles each day as we felt this violated the original agreement of what we set out to undertake for which people have already donated. An extended walking window was also negated by our own work and family commitments.

For similar reasons, we did not wish to abandon the challenge completely. As such, we have decided that the most pragmatic solution at this point is an extended time-out effectively pressing pause on our walk to allow for our condition to improve and, god-willing, the weather to calm itself down! We will then return to Richmond as a three, wildcamp, and pick up exactly where we left off for the final three 25 mile days – culminating at RHB.

We hope everyone can understand this decision and the reasoning behind it; we started this all as a team and will finish it as one within 8 days of walking... although not now on consecutive days.

Thank you all for your understanding; with your help we’ve raised a lot of money for Combat Stress which is still on its way veterans in need and will make a real difference.

110 - Not out!

Stand by for pictures from the walk so far!
