My Mighty Hike

Colin RobertsComment

Well I completed the Cotswolds Way Mighty Hike on Saturday in aid of Macmillan, and what a great day it was. The last 5 months of training in the Cotswolds, Elan Valley , Brecon Beacons ,Cornwall and of course the Forest of Dean payed off on Saturday.

We had a dry start at Hillesley, I started at around 7am in the 1st phase and the weather looked good for the next 3 or so hours, so I knew I could get a fair few miles in before I needed to put waterproofs on, but it was still a bit wet and muddy under foot in places.

I am very pleased with my times and completed it in under 8 hours and averaged 3.31mph or a pace of 17:59 mins per mile and was ranked 22 out of 881.

Thank you to all my sponsors, there is still time to donate to this great charity.
