« on: 14:24:07, 14/05/12 »
Trail had an artical last year for a 70 something mile walk taking 5 days plus, all wild camping bar 1 night which was at the end of teh route. Ive looked through all my copies and cant find it. Anyone remeber the artical?

Yeah, I remember it. It was a Lakeland Haute route. I think they've also done a walking the BGR but that was only 3 days?






I looked for it for someone a few months back but couldn't find it either...but, it definitely existed!

I found this one http://www.livefortheoutdoors.com/News-Landing/Search-Results/Features/Trails-Lake-District-Haute-Route/ but Im pretty sure it was a different route they did. The artical said that 5 days was pushing it and it could take up to 7.

October last year they did a walk of the Bob Graham Round looking at the LFTO website. But no copy of the article.


As I remember that was wild camping and looking the BGR up it is 74 miles (longer than I thought) so I assume it is that. Must have been more days than I remember, they definitely suggested to take longer and enjoy the views more.

Yep thats the one! Just called Trail and a very helpful lady knew the atricle I was on about. Just downloaded the .mmo map file. Im heading up to the lakes a week today so dependant on weather I may give it a whirl. Thanks
