I don't recall challenge walks. Though advertising for such events was so much more a local affairs back then.


I did manage a couple of long walks back then though.  Ten tors 55 miles and an all pointer during a leadership's course at HMS Royal Aurther, that meant walking 80+ miles in 36 hours around the Black Mountains.

Hello, I am conducting a survey to see the needs and wants of my primary consumers, so I can know what features my product should have.My GCSE assessment for DT is to design a product that makes physical recreation easier. My idea is a lightweight camping chair that can be extended into a camping bench. The purpose of the product is to make it possible to have a product that can be carried around easily that allows multiple people to be seated on camping and hiking trips.
I would like to ask any avid and regular hikers to complete my survey in the comments of this forums. 
The Survey(as used by the average hiker)-
1.How useful would the product be on hiking or trekking trips?
2.How big should the product be?
3.How would the product be carried?
4.What surfaces would the product be used on?
5.What environments would the product be taken to?
6.What are specific needs of the product?
7.What are specific wants for the product?


Thank you for doing my survey.

No the furthest I ever walked was the 50 mile dales crosses walk, shredded my feet, it started from Goathland before Heartbeat was thought of. At that time I didn't realise that anyone ran in events like that.

As I was saying before a malfunction on my part. I got into running the circular 26 mile walks, I loved them, didn't have to be out all night, a pint or two after, sometimes the night before when we camped out. We would often use them as training runs, after my first one of those I wouldn't thank you for an entry into the London, I did three road marathons, that was enough, I liked mud and water on my runs. My son is into doing some running events, he gets the Trail runners mag and passes it onto me, I still get the same feeling about it.

Daniel, if you're staying at Fieldhead Camp & having  a pint in the Nags tomorrow, i may catch you. Elderly with short grey hair, that should narrow it down a bit !

Enjoy that Daniel - very jealous of the ability to take that much time off.  Happy days


Thank you, it is pretty much all my annual leave used up, but I am sure it will be worth it.

A very nice trip once again A n B  O0
Some of those views look very familiar but of course I had sunshine and blue skies unlike you two clag magnets ;D
Really glad your bushcrafting skills came to the fore and saved you from dying of hunger ;)

I recently finished University (mature student) and have booked a few weeks off work to celebrate in my own way.  I collected my tickets this morning and I am all set for a big adventure, you can probably guess where I am going to be walking during the week.... and next week.... and the week after that.  ;D ;D ;D
