Hill and mountain walking can be hazardous! Not being prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions can lead to over exposure or heat stroke. Layers are key, allowing you to easily adjust your level of warmth. We are likely to experience some nasty weather, so for your safe enjoyment please bring the items specified on the kit list.
Food & Drink:
Walkers are expected to bring all of the food they need for the walk.
As with kit, make sure you have tried and tested anything you eat during the walks, as you do not know how your body might react.
You are going to be walking for 12 hours. You will consume body fat reserves, expel water and salts that need replacing to prevent muscle cramps, dehydration and fatigue. Hydration is the most important aspect of nutrition. It is essential to take on water in regular, small amounts throughout the walk. It is easy to underestimate how much you need and suffer dehydration, particularly in hot weather. Each walker should carry a minimum of 3 litres of fluid; water and sugary drinks. It is important to bring plenty of high energy food and snacks as well as something substantial like a sandwich for lunch. You need to provide your own food and water for the duration of the Challenge. We expect to have several refreshment stops on the route, but best to prepare for the unexpected!
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
