Charity walk
Closed

Good morning all.

I was asked to join a charity walk for the SPCA, an organisation I have always been very keen on.

The target for May is 100 kms, which sounds very long, but in fact works out at 3.23 ks a day, or 2 miles ..

As I live out in the countryside, there are no companions near me, so I am doing this on my own, and submitting a daily status report to prove my achievement.

I am very fortunate to be in beautiful surroundings, and there are lots of different walks through hills, meadows, woods and even beside rivers..

I am feeling very confident that I will attain my target ( will aim even higher ).

Have any of you done charity walks or runs ?

I'm like Chris in this respects as a longish walk would cripple me for days Paul.

I have done charity walks before but not for quite a while now because of my knees.

Yes but it was a long time ago Paul. I was around the age of 19. It was a mass collection of people, mostly made up of members of the Salvation Army. We were roped in by my mothers sister to partake. This included myself, my parents, brother, sister, my sisters boyfriend. Not to mention my mothers sister and her son and daughter (all 3 of whom were in the Sally Ann). It was an over night walk from Croydon town hall to Brighton. Naturally everyone had to carry a torch, but at the time there were no instructions about wearing any kind of high vis clothing!
At a certain point my brother and I got feed up with the slow pace we were walking at. So we picked up speed, leaving the rest of our gang, along with everyone else way behind. We stopped off at various checkpoints, arriving in Brighton around dawn to report to the final checkpoint near steps leading down to the beach, not far from the pier. Once we had checked in we were told that we were the first to arrive. In any event, enjoy your up and coming waddle in the fresh air.

Good luck to you! When you break it down to miles per day it isnt has daunting as it initially sounds. Will you do a bit every day or in bigger chunks?

As a kid I did allsorts of sponsored runs or swims & and I have done a few Red Nose Day or (weirdly named) Fun Runs through places I have worked at. I haven't done anything athletic and charitable for a few decades though.
