“On Saturday September 11th I took part in the Ultra Challenge 25k Thames Bridges Trek. It was truly an exciting adventure walking 15 ½ miles in aid of Hospice in the Weald. The event attracted over 2200 walkers all supporting their chosen charities.
The Trek started at Bishop’s Park, Fulham, zig zagging 16 London bridges from Putney Bridge, with a half way rest break at the Oval Cricket Ground, then on to Tower Bridge, finishing in Southwark Park Bermondsey where we received our reward – a medal, a finishers T shirt, a meal and a rest!!
The Trek took us alongside the River Thames, passing many of London’s famed landmarks – Battersea Park, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, London Eye, Lambeth Palace, Tower Bridge giving us some fantastic views along the Thames. A really memorable day. The camaraderie was a pleasure to witness from the start to the finish.
Thanks to all who supported me for the Trek through JustGiving and cash donations. The total to date is £1105.00. Your support was much appreciated.”
