So i’m walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats this year, from February 24th to June 17th. All 2000km of the LEJOG. 

So why on earth am I doing it? Because I love groundhopping and long distance hikes, so why not combine the two! Plus i’m raising money for Street Soccer Scotland and capturing all the stories I stumble upon into a book. 

My bag is packed and the route it mapped out - but I need your help! If you play for or support the local team, or know anyone in the places I’m visiting that could share stories or help me find a place to rest my head and feet for the night, I’d love it hear from you. 

Check out the route below and please donate to those who can really use the money.
