LDWA 100 in 2021 (The 100 miles Long Distance Walkers Association Challenge Walk)
This is the story of how I had a go at the LDWA 100 in 2021…. The links below has more information about this little plan, with my story of the event now linked in below. There’s also some information about the event and interviews with other participants.
And, a lot of this is about encouraging other people to walk. Not necessarily 100 miles, but perhaps just a bit further than people might have thought about before, the LDWA have challenge events that start at 18 miles and these are accessible for many more people.
I can also say now that I completed the event.
MY SUCCESSFUL 100 COMPLETION ATTEMPT
These aren’t qualifying events, but I’ve written about some of the other challenge events I’ve done over the last couple of years, including the Smuggler’s Trod 2018 and 2019, as well as the Birmingham Canal Canter in 2019. Oh, and as bit more background, this is my report of the 2020 AGM.
And, when we can start walking, this is where the details of the longer (and some shorter) training walks will go…..
