Torr Waterfield's 2017 Challenge – The Llyn Peninsula


This year’s challenge was a 46 mile, two day hike around the Llyn Peninsula in Wales.

Having walked similar distances in the past, we thought that knew what we were letting ourselves in for …

However, we had not anticipated the many obstacles along the way, including:

Ankle deep boggy mud

Steep and slippery climbs and descents

No pubs on route

Wet feet from start to finish

High tide (meaning we had to wade waist deep into the sea)

Cows

Rain

This was probably our toughest challenge so far. Our support team were unable to relax and had to come to our rescue twice on day one.

Eventually, most of us made it to the finish line (the pub) for a well-earned pint!

We would like to thank everybody that supported and sponsored us. So far we have raised over £2,000 for our charity of the year, The Alzheimer’s Society.
