Already, it’s been six-days since I completed my second successive Circuit of Bath challenge. I didn’t take quite as many photos on this occasion – or, to put it another way; I didn’t photograph quite as much – because you’ll have already seen so much of it from last year’s event. But I hope you enjoy what I do have to share.
The Circuit of Bath is an annual fundraising event in support of Julian House. I’ve chosen to walk the full 20-mile circuit where as you can walk as little as 2 miles if you’d prefer.
Tomorrow, I’ll be walking the full 20-mile stretch of the Circuit of Bath route for the second year running. Today was a mainly about warming up, having not been on a reasonable walk for two-weeks now.
It may seem excessive for some but as I regular walker of over 10 miles, I’m capable and I’ve found in the past that a short walk the day before can help to prepare your body for the hardship that follows. Today, I chose to return to Pensford.
Sunday was a day I’d been anticipated for just over three whole months. It’s great when you meet someone who has shared interests. It’s rare that I meet another walker but I’m grateful to have met several people in the last year who are also passionate about walking and the outdoors. It was one of these friends who first let me know about the annual Circuit of Bath Walk, which is a fund-raising even of up to 20-miles of walking. It’s all in aid of Julian House; a charity who provide food, shelter and support to people living rough on the streets of Bath.
My fund-raising page was setup about a month in advance and I managed to raise a small amount which has already been received by the charity. I’ll remain open until the end of December so, if you are feeling generous, small donations are always welcome.
It’s a frightening thought but we are already in to September! At the end of this month, I’m walking 20 miles for charity along a circular route known as the Circuit of Bath. It’s an annual event that is organised by the Julian House; an organisation who provides support, food and shelter to homeless people living within the city.
I’d like to ask people to consider sponsoring me and you are welcome to do so at this link above. If you don’t wish to, that’s absolutely fine. I don’t expect anyone reading this to do anything but I would also be grateful to anyone who shares this.
I’ve already bought myself a T-shirt, as you can see above but if I fail to raise any sponsorship money them I will happily donate something from my own pocket, which is what I understand my friend does.
