Three days of sunshine and five more teams cross the line: Blossom Creep, R13 Ramblers, the Getaway Girls just in front of the Hungry Hippos with the Norfolk Constabulary close on their rather large heels. It looks like the St George’s Gang will arrive today and then we will have…

Crossing the line on Thursday 27th May were the Stradsett Strollers (yours truly) and the Natural Wanderers. Both their team names promised a more casual approach and both delivered! The Strollers have been able to off their oak log and it was well received by the architects, Norfolk timber being…

Since I last reported, Tor De Force has reappeared after going AWOL and has completed the journey; as have The Blossom Leap, Collaborative Bridge, Walking through the Gate and the Sheringham Strollers. When the Constabulary heard Walking through the Gate had done just that, they did a blue light run…

It is Monday afternoon as I write this. Legs Miserables, Striding for St Martins and The Midwich Marchers are all in a crowded café being well attended to by Yvette and Pierre. And even as I write this and look back at the Leaderboard it looks like the Rotary Ramblers…

Well after Friday any thing had to be an improvement weatherwise and it has been, ‘just’. The Hospice Hikers and the Late Entrants have arrived at Notre Dame and many congratulations to them. Not far behind them now and soon to cross the line are the Midwich Marchers for Norfolk…

Friday 21st May 2021 has to be remembered for being one of the mostly beastly May days on record, at least in Norfolk. It is late afternoon and I have only done 2 miles but my Stroller team have invited me to guide them at 5.30 and since it has…

Two teams (the Hospice Hikers and the Late Entrants) were within striking distance of N-D last night but I have yet to hear they have crossed the line; and so I have to conclude that the weather in Austria where almost all of the Late Entrants are walking is as…

Two more teams make it to Yvette’s Café in the shadow of Notre-Dame and are enjoying a carafe or two of her finest wine. Well done to the Rotary Ramblers for the King’s Lynn Rotary Club Benevolent Fund; and to Scrambled Legs, the last of the three teams from The…

The Red Hot Chilli Steppers have now also arrived. The second of the Garage Teams and obviously a fine ‘stable’ with a good trainer. Their third team, Scrambled Legs, is now desperate to make it a ‘one, two, three’ for The Garage as one of their sponsors has a big…

As I write this, news has reached me from Paris that the DoubleR NR have made it to Notre-Dame! What an amazing effort and for such a great cause. Congratulations to all! They must have been in training for this but whatever, to do this in under one week is…

End of Day Five and we now have eight teams having cleared immigration and are in France. The DoubleR NR are way through Amiens and in sight of Paris. In addition to posting some emotive blogs, they are each averaging more than 12 miles a day and as a team,…

This is not a race but if it were, it would be something of a one-horse one as The Double R NR (as I now prefer to call them) are only 133 miles short of Notre-Dame and, as I write this (end of Day Five), at their current rate will…
