Tour de Walkshire 2021

My Activity Tracking


My target 200 mi

Having lost both my parents to cancer I’m taking part in Tour de Walkshire this year.

Every week in Yorkshire nearly 600 people are told they have cancer. Yorkshire Cancer Research is an independent cancer charity funding pioneering research to prevent, diagnose and treat this condition.

This May they’ve teamed up with Welcome to Yorkshire for Tour de Walkshire. I’ve chosen my distance and will be walking, running or cycling to raise money for this vital cause. Please support my efforts and help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer.

My Updates

Nearly Over

Sunday 30th May
Just had 3 lovely walks in the Eden Valley. Plenty of Bluebells in the woods and walking by a number of rivers. It has been a lovely way to finish this special month.

Late Friday Walk

Sunday 9th May
With the wet weather we set out around 5pm on Friday 7th.  Up on to the hills and through Outlane for a drink stop at the New Inn which turned into a meal as well!

Bluebell woods

Wednesday 5th May
Had a walk in the woods above Elland Crem yesterday between the showers!

And we are off...

Monday 3rd May
Good first couple of days, solo walk on Saturday and a group walk yesterday.  Managed a quick march before the rain today, typical Bank Holiday weather.
