26-mile charity walk – the training begins!

Our Stories

Helena and I have started our training regime for the one-day, 26-mile London Stadia Trekathon, taking in the sites of the 2012 Olympics, that the two of us are undertaking on 13 May.

We are treating it seriously – investing in incredibly comfortable (but not at all stylish) footwear and a pedometer, and setting off on lunchtime speed-walks around St Margaret’s and Richmond.

We’re also embarking on longer hikes on the occasional evening and weekend too, kicking off last week with our first after-work walk from St Margaret’s to High Street Kensington along the river.

The route’s approximately 7.4 miles, which I rounded up to eight miles when showing off afterwards to our Travel PR colleagues! It was a gorgeous walk – we didn’t complain once and the dreamy sunset we witnessed from Hammersmith Bridge was a big highlight (check out the picture below…).

We decided to sign up to the Trekathon – organised by our client Discover Adventure – to raise money for charity. If you would like to show your support, I’m raising money for Alzheimer’s Society on this page; and, for Lyme Disease Action, Helena is raising money here (don’t worry about the security page – it’s an https webpage).
