Team story

[p]Hi, I'm doing some sponsored events for the two charities over there. [/p][p]I've said I want to raise £560 because it reflects the main event I'm doing, but I would love to double that for £560 for each charity...[/p][lt]h1[gt]The Events[lt]/h1[gt][lt]h2[gt]The Bullock Smithy - 2[sup]nd[/sup]/3[sup]rd[/sup] September[lt]/h2[gt][p]This is my big event, the [url=https://is.gd/VWM7B2]Bullock Smithy[/url] is a 56 mile walk in 24hours through the Peak District. It starts in Hazel Grove and takes us out to Edale and Castleton, Down through Peak Forest and Miller's Dale, over to Macclesfield Forest before returning us to Hazel Grove. [/p][p]For those that don't know, the Peak District is really rather hilly. [/p][p]I... errr... [url=https://penwing.me.uk/Drupal7/?q=node/111]attempted this[/url] - I managed 36 miles which is still, frankly, amazing.[/p][lt]h2[gt]Yorkshire 3 Peaks - 24[sup]th[/sup] June[lt]/h2[gt][p]This is another long walk taking in the three highest peaks in Yorkshire over about 24 miles. This is, however, something of a training exercise.[/p][p][url=https://penwing.me.uk/Drupal7/?q=node/110]I completed this in 11 hours and 37 minutes[/url].[/p][lt]h2[gt]Rough Runner - 22nd October[lt]/h2[gt][p]A 5k Obstacle Course... Why am I doing this to myself?!?[/p][lt]h1[gt]The Charities[lt]/h1[gt][lt]h2[gt]Albert Kennedy Trust[lt]/h2[gt][p]The Albert Kennedy Trust is an organisation which works with (often homeless) LGBT youth. They operate shelters, a forstering programme and a mentoring scheme. They are named for a young gay man who lost his life in Manchester after running away from a childrens' home.[/p][p]Albert Kennedy Trust's [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FiVTCJXE9M&t=29s]25th Anniversary Appeal [/url]video give some information about what they do.[/p][lt]h2[gt]Medecins Sans Frontieres[lt]/h2[gt][p]Medecins San Frontieres (a.k.a Doctors Without Borders) provide much needed medical support in war zones, refugee camps and other places where traditional health care is lacking. [/p][p]Their [url=http://youtu.be/mXV8lTgETks]intro video[/url], [url=http://youtu.be/ArXDuGGf1Eg]ordinary day video[/url] and [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXzhtvopBBw]2015 video[/url] give a good introduction to what they are all about.[/p][lt]h1[gt]The Training[lt]/h1[gt][p]We're slowly working our way round the whole route and, in June starting to pick up the pace... considerably. In the middle of June we did our longest walk - about 19 miles - and things seemed to work out ok. Last weekend was [url=https://penwing.me.uk/Drupal7/?q=node/110]the Yorkshire Three Peaks[/url] and then we've got a night hike of the night section which will ramp up the milage a bit more and let us practice night walking... We also know the section and the pitfalls to look out for...[/p][p]I even have some [url=https://goo.gl/photos/FV57hLwj6f4RGLzg8]photos[/url].[/p]
