Event details

Camino de Norte - 500 miles in 25 days

Beginning in Irun on Monday 23 June, and finishing in Santiago de Compostela for the fiesta of Santiago (St James) on Friday 25 July. Fr Joe Lappin and Andrew McSorley plan to walk the 'route less travelled' by walking the 500 miles of the Camino de Norte in 25 days. A less frequented and more challenging pilgrim route through some of Spain's more rugged scenery, this northern coastal route will challenge the fitness and resilience of both walkers. With the support and prayers of our respective communities we hope to raise funding for our chosen charity.Fr Joe and Andrew will be staying in Camino Hostels along the route before arriving in Santiago de Compostela and an opportunity to rest their feet in a hotel bed.
