Essex: Exploring the Langdon Hills Jump to location backpackartist supports Social Hiking!

Essex: Southend or Bustbackpackartist is fundraising for charity Jump to location backpackartist supports Social Hiking!

17th Jun 2014

A long walk as training for the 10-in-10 challenge on 21 June. At 16+ miles and 1900m of ascent, the 10-in-10 can't easily be replicated locally, so this training walk attempts to compensate for the extra ascent with extra distance. Please sponsor me on http://www.justgiving.com/hillplodder or text HLPD99 £amount to 70070

Beacons: 46 | Distance: 40.4 km | Height Gain: 110 m

Essex: The Orsett Fen Incident Jump to location backpackartist supports Social Hiking!

13th Jun 2014
