Leg 2 – 2nd July
Starting at Zennor and Ending at Gwithian
The Days Journey
Set off from Zennor at eight, it felt a bit daft driving back to where we had finished the night before. Mind says just start from camp site. The first 7 miles were on tarmac oh joy….
OK, the blister picture; the day before we started I decided to wear my new golf shoes and have a round half way round. I could feel the hot spot. It’s not with walking it’s just I can’t get it to heal so I have cut the back of my shoe out for tomorrow. It’s only pain, others have to deal with a lot worse.
Hayle is a lovely town and we found the best pork pie shop… only dreams are made of pork pies!!
Hayle was once the centre of the world for steam engine manufacturing and maintenance and we saw a couple of awe inspiring memorials to local heroes.
We ended up diving into tomorrow’s route by a couple is miles as it’s a long one.

Todays Leg is Dedicated to:
Today’s dedication is for Rachel McHugh whose father Liam is an Ambassador for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and dedicates his life to raising funds and awareness; he’s particularly central to the fight for Orkambi being available to all. This is what Liam has to say …..
My name is Liam McHugh and my wife Eleanor and myself have our only child Rachel with CF aged 26. When she was diagnosed back then life expectancy was around 16 years of age. It’s been a tough daily battle but Rachel who has been on the drug Orkambi for nearly five years is doing great. She has a Degree, Masters and at the end of this year she will be Dr. Rachel McHugh in Psychology. We are very proud of her. This wouldn’t be possible without the vital funds raised over the years to help beat CF for good. That’s why it’s still so important today to keep the fundraising going. Rachel lives life to the full and always has a smile on her face. Life expectancy is rising and soon we want to say everyone with cf will live a life unlimited
