Story

In 2016 I successfully navigated 560 miles on foot from Lowestoft to Land's End raising over £3000 for my local Scout group in Macclesfield and in 2014 300 miles from Lindisfarne to Iona raising £2500 for Cre8 Macclesfield.

2018 turns my attention to the challenge of walking from the English Channel at Dover to Cape Wrath, the far north-west corner of Great Britain, supporting national charity Fibromyalgia Action UK. The beeline direction of the route is approx towards magnetic north; hence the title given to the journey.

At around 900 miles TT2018 is about 350 miles further than TT2016 and it will be wilder and tougher as I head north; I will hopefully be accompanied by a friend or family member for some of the lonelier Scottish sections of the route :)

TT2016 took me 32 days to walk the 560 miles from Lowestoft to Land's End. For this route bearing in mind that parts of it are significantly more arduous, I'm allowing 50 days plus a few rest days!
