I'm a family man, and an outdoors and wildlife enthusiast who loves walking, in fact it is my main method of transport.

wildlife photography and blogging fill up my spare time, and I will be blogging about my exploits on this challenge on my established blog so pop over and read more about it.

Event details

Walking 2500 Miles in 2017

After being inspired to join in with #walk1000miles in 2017 (Run by Country Walks Magazine) I checked my Fitbit stats from 2016 and realized I had surpassed that total so decided to give myself a real challenge and walk 2500 miles through 2017 instead. 

These miles will not solely be "boots on" miles (dedicated walks), but will cover day to day walking as well, walks to work, school and the shops count!

Running total: 2177 miles (30-10-2017)

Oh and I won't always be alone my partner Zoe and Daughter Bo (7) have both agreed to take part in #walk1000miles so will be with me sometimes.

I hope to walk at least one (but maybe a few) Challenge walks through the year.

Major Milestones:

100 Miles - Achieved 11th Jan
500 Miles - Achieved 25th Feb
1000 Miles - Achieved 8th May
1500 Miles - Achieved 29th July
2000 Miles - Achieved 8th October
2500 Miles - *****
