Walkers vs Mud and Miles

By Annie Veenman

Published 9th April 2018


Our fabulous and intrepid Miles for Mental Health walk organiser, Alan, has been out and about making sure that the route for the walk is A-OK.


He’s cycled the route and can confirm that, though it’s muddy in certain points, the walk is good to go and the breaks are as confirmed on the route sheet.


Woohoo! Thanks Alan, it’s good to know that you’re so organised – what’s a bit of mud to us brave hikers!


Looks like we’ll not only be taking in the lovely scenery (think, great photo opportunities!) but also learning some really interesting canal history along the way too.


We’re all really looking forward to it and some of us have even been getting in some walk training – yes, walking around the block at lunch time still counts as training…….


Alan is happy for his phone number to be available to anyone who might need it on the walk days regarding meet points, queries or timing issues. As M4MH approaches we’ll make sure it’s available to those adventurers joining us.


Alan is an experienced hiker (our very own Bear Grylls) and is super prepared for the journey, he’s thought of everything so we’re in very safe hands.


We’re really grateful to him for being so dedicated, he’s volunteering his time too – come on sponsors, dig deep and support Alan and the other dedicated walkers!
