WAMOT – walk a mile or two

What can we say? 

After setting a ‘group’ walking target of 1000 miles in September it was decided to have another go in October.  Both targets achieved with miles to spare.  So then a new target of 5000 miles for the quarter (Sep-Nov) was set and, guess what, we hit 5111 miles.

It really is a credit to all 35 folk in the group for having a go. From the zimmer frame stroller with a mile at a time to the canal bank strider doing 5 miles a day its a brilliant achievement so well done to all and special thanks to Brenda for the sums.

This may be of interest to various groups especially as some maps go back to 1885 and come in various ‘flavours’.  Enjoy
