As I mentioned a few weeks ago, one of my projects this year is raising awareness of the Lullaby Trust’s ‘Walk for Babies’ campaign. I also mentioned that I would be taking on my very own challenge. Well I have now finalised my route and can reveal that I’m going to be taking on a 50 mile sponsored walk on Saturday 10th June.

I am going to walk a route that is local to me, the ‘Northamptonshire Round‘ in one day. I’m planning on it taking me about 14-15 hours.

Here’s a map of the Northamptonshire Round

The reason that I chose this route is because I wanted a circular route I could do in one go, it’s also local to me and passes through many villages that I know very well. Furthermore, I am very proud of being a Northamptonian (hopefully this comes across in my blog!) and I love sharing my passion for this beautiful, and often overlooked, county.

Timings are tbc, but I will be setting off from Brixworth Country Park very early in the morning to make the most of the daylight. I will be roping in friends and family to join me for sections of the walk, and if anybody else fancies tagging along for a bit, just let me know! If you want to show your support in another way, I have set up a JustGiving page here.

There will be plenty of updates over the next few months as I try to get into some sort of decent shape and I will also be posting ideas and advice for anyone who would like to do their own challenge this year. Whether it’s tackling a mountain or a leisurely stroll, I’ve got lots of ideas for walks that anybody can do.

Have you ever taken on a challenge like this? (If so please tell me it ended well!)
