Hadrian's Wall 26 mile day trek
Raising money for Macmillan
The Challenge
We are walking 26 miles of the hardest part of Hadrian's Wall in one day, in THIS HEAT!!!!
The Charity
Macmillan do outstanding work for people and their families that are coping with cancer. We have both been affected by this awful disease in different ways and have recognised what amazing work Macmillan nurses do. In order to keep supporting people in so many ways they need more funding, we are trying our hardest to help them.
The Training
We spent our Summer 'holiday' this year in the Peak District in order to prepare for the trek, we trekked for a min of 6 hours each day in temperatures reaching 28 degrees. It was sweaty, it was very hard, but not as hard as life with cancer. I am also running the Loughborough 10k Race for Life the week before the trek challenge (and I am NOT a runner!!) which means that we have pretty much dedicated the whole of July to training (and restricted wine at the weekends!)
