Pennine Way for Crisis UK

Trip ReportJames Hipkiss

I completed this challenge for Crisis UK on 10th July 2013. The Pennine Way is 270 mile / 430 km from Edale in the Peak District to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish borders. I realised after the last four walks that I need to keep my own costs down so I camped where possible and did the walk without support.

You can read more about the walk including the kit that I took athttp://rucksackrose.wordpress.com/distance-walks/the-pennine-way/ This was my fifth distance walk. I did Hadrian's wall (84 miles/135km) for the MS Society in June 2012 and the Dales Way (78 miles/126km) for the British Lung Foundation in August 2012.

This year I also completed the St. Cuthbert's Way (65 miles) and the Cumbria Way (78 miles) in preparation for the Pennine Way.
