Ginny and Gill of Essex & Herts (pictured below) look in amazingly good nick considering they've just walked 100 miles in 31 hours. Huge congratulations to them and to everyone else who completed their Home-Made Hundreds over the weekend, including Jill Green and Jim Catchpole who finished their Pensioners' Promenade in 42 hours.

They did it! - well played, Ginny and Gill from Essex & Herts





Bank Holiday reading

If you're looking for a bit of Bank Holiday reading (all those putting your feet up after their Hundred might especially appreciate it), how about this? Cathy Phillips pointed me towards the inspiring story of Emma Gatewood, who at the age of 67 hiked the Appalachian Trail. Emma Gatewood



Sheringham trip



Message from Ron Williamson:

I have booked my ticket for the Sheringham trip on Tuesday June 22nd.

Purchased via C2C website current price with railcard single advance tickets £9:20 each way from Liverpool St or £8:55 from Stratford.

Travel on the 8:30 from Liverpool St  (8:37 Stratford) return on 18:52 from Sheringham.

The Website says "only 9 tickets available at this price" so perhaps best to book ASAP.

Let me know if you intend to come and how you get on booking a ticket.

To encourage you to attend this year here is a picture from our last visit!

Just an example of what you think you're seeing if, like me, you tend to experience hallucinations towards the end of a Hundred
