Going the extra (hundred+) mile(s)
What are you up to this summer?
Tackling the 268 rugged miles of the Pennine Way in 16 consecutive days of hiking might not be top of your list of relaxing activities – especially given the odd weather conditions we’ve had so far. Nonetheless, two brothers, James and Josh Martin, aged 12 and 16 respectively, plan to undertake this challenge in order to raise funds for Buxton Mountain Rescue.
James is no stranger to the team. From the age of 9, he has sucessfully completed several previous hill-walking challenges to support us. Last year, James completed the Wainwrights, and this year he’s so far yomped around the Lakes at Easter, and June, managing to climb Hevellyn twice.
It’s impossible not to be impressed with his singular committment and focus – something we’ve had to double since he’s roped his big brother in! Read more about James’s story on his Justgiving page which we highly recommend you look at – and donate to.
Safe journey lads, and the very best wishes from everyone in the team.
