We are off to a good start, with lots of people signing up for the challenge in different ways. At the start of last year’s Walk one of the first off the mark was Melanie Rayner, in the photo no 25, she is running the same route at 8.30 on the morning of June 2nd, if you see her give her a wave. Also on the same photo to the left, no 37, is Jane Thomas who is walking the 6k with her husband in easy stages over a weekend. Waking the 2019 route is Stuart Copeland, no 64 in the checked shirt, Angela Kendal, the pixie, is walking 6k on the rambla near their home with husband Phil. Maria Walters is walking 6 k around Cerro Gordo.
There are more, Claire Harper is swimming 6×6, 36k in her own pool over 6 weeks and Nigel Bradder, who is 66 this year is doing 6+6=12k around Arboleas on his Elliptigo (see the photo to find out what that is).
For the less energetic, Trudy Sailes has persuaded her family to sponsor her doing 6 hours of weeding and Jeanette Bye, only confident of walking 3k, has persuaded people to sponsor her per kilometre and will try to do 6.
PS 3k=1.86 miles and 6k= 3.73 miles
