I belong to two walking groups so generally get out at least once a month for a decent walk. Not necessarily major distances but good fun and a break from the running.

On the extreme side I did hike up to Annapurna base camp in October last year with some people from one of the groups. 6 days to get up and 3 to come down. Not intentional altitude training but I managed a half decent half marathon two weeks after coming home!!

Not wishing to open old wounds, but are you doing it with a packhorse company this time HP? Or under your own steam?

I have booked all accommodation myself and a baggage transfer company for excess bags (mostly dog food and snacks for the week). I shall be double checking all my bookings.

Whatever you do folks if you book with a company make sure you check them out or get recommendations.

I'm trying to work out how much of the Cumbria way I can get a time-out pass to do. I know some folks seem to be able to run it as an ultra - so wondering what the minimum time to walk it with tent etc might be
Cumbria way this year, hopefully - coast to coast to follow
