Walk 49: Let’s Get Ready to Ramble – Part 2

Horton in Ribblesdale to Skipton: There was just over a month to Trailtrekker and it had been the plan for some time for us to do the rest of the route to complete our main training. Sure we would all keep active in the meantime but this walk of all but 40 miles would be the maximum distance we would cover prior to the event.

Walk 48: Kings & Queens of the Castle

Castle Crag from Rosthwaite: Day three of our “Wainwright weekend” began at a more relaxed pace than the first two days. The reason for this was more to do with the agreement made the previous night that we would take stock in the morning, rather than the late start be forced on us due to hangovers.

Walk 47: Saddle Up

Bowscale Fell, Bannerdale Crags, Mungrisdale Common, Blencathra & Souther Fell from Mungrisdale: My legs were a little stiff after the previous days excursion, but I felt good to go as we had some breakfast at Badger Towers whilst deciding on the route for today. The weather forecast for the weekend had suggested it would get worse with each passing day but the local news the night before had offered some hope.

Walk 46: Kid You Knott

The Knott, Rampsgill Head, High Raise & Kidsty Pike from Hartsop: At Easter last year the Badgers spent the four day weekend walking the 52 miles of the Herriot Way and having a great time in the process. As that was such a success we had decided six months ago that we would do something this Easter too.

Walk 45: Let’s Get Ready to Ramble – Part 1

Skipton to Horton in Ribblesdale: Two weeks on from the feet carnage of our canal walk, we were off once again to stretch the legs and put in some more hard miles as practice for the mammoth walk that is Trailtrekker. In all truth my feet hadn’t healed properly and in an ideal world I would have sat this walk out to allow them extra time to sort themselves out, but this is not an ideal world we live in.
