We had a great day participating in the Chiltern 3 Peaks Challenge and were thankful for the glorious weather we had.
Around 800 walkers took part in the annual Challenge on Sunday 11 September. The route started at Princes Risborough School, and offered walkers one of four routes that were 6.5, 8, 10 or 18 miles long. We did the 6.5 mile route, just to be on the safe side as we didn’t want to sign everyone up to something really difficult. As it was we only just made the last bus back to the start because we found a couple of places to stop (the farm shop for coffee and the most amazing sausage rolls) – we actually went back for more after the walk they were so good!
The 6.5 mile walk was only the two peak challenge, but it did take us over some beautiful countryside and across the main entrance to the Prime Ministers residence at Chequers Court – very unexpected! I think we have a plan for next year, start earlier and do the 8 mile walk because everyone enjoyed it so much.
Ted the dog might need to train for the 8 mile walk! Dave wanted to run it, Kathy supplied some great home made oat cakes, Janet and Lee supplied the constant jokes, Krishna expected the hills to be bigger – when you come from Nepal I guess they know what hills really are! I brought along the chocolate as my excuse to eat.
Rennie Groves announced that over £50,000 has been raised so far to provide care and support for patients and their families across west Herts and Bucks who need end-of-life care.
There is still time to donate if you want to.
