Good luck on the Longmynd Hike

A brief message for all those taking part in the Longmynd Hike this weekend.

Good luck, enjoy, and look after each other.

One of the original intentions behind the Tour des Marches Challenge Walk, was to provide those entered in the Hike with a suitable training event.

Many of our entrants have gone on to successfully complete the 50-mile Longmynd Hike, ably organised by the 2nd Longmynd Scouts Group, assisted by many others.

For more information, check out the Longmynd Hike website.

Well, Phil didn't quite pull off his normal lovely weather for the walk, but judging by your comments you all seem to have enjoyed the experience. Congratulations on whatever distance you achieved.

Morning all.

Forecast for today: still showers, though one or two might be heavier and the breeze is now being classed as moderate. We hope the wind is always at your back and may the showers only fall when you're walking in the woods.

Good luck everyone.
