Leg 14 – 18th July

Starting at Ashford Reservoir and Ending at Walton

The Days Journey

It had to happen one day! 21.5 miles (not planned) 400 feet.

TOTAL WALKED TO DATE –  223 MILES

I must be the biggest 16, 17, 9, 3, 11.
Known to man! I will not swear on here so think about a, b,c, it’s easy as 1,2,3

First off it had to happen, we took a wrong path! If I never see the King Sedgemore Drain again it will be too soon! It was a wrong path side that cost us just over two miles, not a lot, but a lot when you have done enough.

Secondly I think I have broken records today, look at the photo, let me explain. I had tweaked a calf a few days ago I said nowt but just iced it up, but forgot to cover the ice pack with a sock, so I think I have frost bite you could not even write it. LEJOG in 25 degree and the above numbers gets Frost bite!!!! Mr Bonington would laugh.!

It now is also looking a little infected, but looking after it well, but Elizabeth Jane Harris, can you help? My wife is with me who has been a staff nurse for over 30 years but we have not kit????.
Any how, rest of photos:

Crossed the M5 today and I had my first twinge of home sickness I suppose it had to happen at some point.

Lamb and Malcolm just all happy after the walk.

Sedgemore drain (never to be seen again)

Holy Souls Primary School in Blackburn where our Running4CF friend Danielle Ellison is Headmistress and along with the whole school has been a huge supporter of Steve’s challenge. On 22nd June Steve and Garry plus a team of staff and volunteers walked 60 Year 10 and 11 children up to the Big End of Pendle on a sponsored walk whilst the younger age group did events at the school - they raised an enormous £2600 ...amazing and we are all incredibly grateful.
