Walk Report

An Ecclesiastical Odyssey Again, Friday 26th January 2018
22 walkers, 13 miles - leader Ron Williamson
Start 10:50 Finish 17:15
A break in the wet and windy weather of the past week enabled the "Pop Uppers" to enjoy this second ecclesiastical odyssey in a sunny City.
With only a few brief excursions outside the boundary of the square mile some 13 miles were covered with over 500 ft of climb, although the G.P.S. readings once again varied alarmingly.
Our Hall of Fame now lists 34 members who have completed the course, including 4 stalwarts on two occasions.
Whilst the Role of Shame shows that one member has attempted the challenge twice but failed to finish on both occasions. (probably on purpose, he likes his picture taken)
A comparison between yesterday and last year, for those interested in such things.
