Oxfam Trailtrekker- Done!

Ready To Ramble

I thought I’d post a quick update on my latest charity based adventure, two weeks back I took part in the Oxfam Trailtrekker event in the Yorkshire Dales along with three other fools who thought it would be clever to try and walk 100km without sleep.

After five and a bit months of training in the worst weather conditions this country could throw at us and in some of the most remote locations the day finally came for us to tackle the beast. We eventually finished the course in 31 hours with two members of the team having to drop out with feet like bubble wrap and injured legs.

Check out the web site we produced to see the images from throughout the training and more information on the task, Trailtrekker is such an awesome event though and i would recommend anyone who fancies a challenge to give it a go, I think a Full Phat Design team may have to be compiled for 2014!

All in all the Lets Get Ready To Ramble team raised just over £2000 in online and offline donations which will go to a great cause, Oxfam. A huge Thank you must go to Tineke Floral Designs and Lick That Bowl who kindly donated prizes for our charity beer festival which made a massive contribution to our total along with everyone who sponsored and supported us along the way.

Crossing the finish!
