Heading south from our start point near the village of Cheddar we walk the edge of the Mendip Hills to Cheddar Gorge and on to the small cathedral city of Wells, we continue on flatter farmland, finally turning west towards Glastonbury, famous for its ancient history, mythical connections and music festival! We finish our challenge with a final effort to the top of Glastonbury Tor.
This is a tough event over the hills, farmland and wetlands of rural Somerset. At 26 miles it forms an enormous challenge for walkers. There will be full support throughout the challenge with marshals and water stops along the route.
Our start point is near the village of Cheddar, we head straight for the Mendip Hills, the steep climbs give wonderful views of the sweeping ridges around us. The famous Cheddar Gorge is in our sights and this is where we are headed.
After the Gorge we turn east and walk through farmland until we reach our half way point after the village of Priddy in the area of the well-known Wookey Hole Caves.
Our Route is flatter now as we reach the City of Wells and on to Glastonbury and its Tor. Summitting the Tor marks the end of our marathon distance event and we've time to celebrate our achievements.
