Nigel Langford and Colin Toogood (left) at the 24k point – the summit of the largest climb on the 40k ‘Just Walk’ route, Bignor Hill – in aid of the BMA. The guys made it round the course in eight hours – a fantastic effort. Congratulations and thanks go to them both.
The 40k Just Walk course is one enormous loop, starting and finishing at Goodwood Racecourse in East Sussex; it follows a trail through miles of beautiful woodland and then up and over the South Downs (part of the South Downs Way).
After weeks of uninterrupted, sunny weather the day started with a torrential downpour and all of the walkers set off in full wet weather gear. Fortunately, after about the first five minutes, the rain stopped and the rest of the walk was completed in fine weather.
Nigel and Colin can vouch for what a great event this is and we, at the BMA, hope to see a lot more interest in this beautiful walking challenge next year (whatever the weather!)…
