London to Brighton Trek 2013

Update: Read my post walk blog post over at Team Pacific Rowers

On the 22nd June 2013, I will be taking part in the London to Brighton Trek; a 100km (AKA welllllll long) walk…… from…. well…. London to Brighton…. if that wasn’t already apparent. I will be walking with a group of friends – Dan, Mike, Tom, Stu and James – under the moniker “Colossal Velocity” (name chosen by Dan at everyone else’s lethargy). There will be free energy drinks and snacks.

The walk sets off from Richmond Upon Thames, heads through the London suburbs then down through Surrey and Sussex before finishing in Brighton for a well earned curry (Mike is tasked with securing these for our arrival) and numerous much needed ales to occupy our mouths since every ounce of conversation will have been well and truly exhausted in the previous 20-30 hours and our legs will ache.

We will be raising money for the British Heart Foundation (not the Fraser Hart foundation). If you are feeling generous enough to sponsor us, you can do so at our Just Giving page.

Those pledging any amount of sponsorship will be publicly thanked on this blog with a link your blog/site/business, whether it’s £0.20 or …….

I originally thought we were doing the London to Brighton Challenge, a similar walk on May 25. I have today been put right. This is a good thing for me as I have an extra month to train. All money already already donated is going to the same charity for the new walk and will be passing straight to them via Just Giving.
