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 and Waveney Mind, and Legs Misérables for the St Martins Housing Trust who, in a late run, have come from way down the field by walking over 80 miles in the last two days! I should think their legs are feeling a little that way!
If the team leader of the Ouse Valley Walkers for the Swan Youth Project did not spend so much time adjusting his hats, they may well have made it; but he is going to Paris after all and wants to look the part!
Sixty miles short, or so (much less, by the time this report is published) are Blossom Leap, Tor de Force and Walking Through The Gate. Pierre is brushing up his English…
The Stradsett Strollers have been seen with their oak log in Amiens Cathedral. I do hope the Parisian architects appreciate their efforts.
Just over a week to go to the Bank Holiday by which time we hope most of the teams will have made it. We will continue to monitor the progress of those teams who are still walking but will not be covering the event in as much detail.
Our attention will then turn to the Young Carers of Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. In rather larger teams, they will be attempting to cover the 375-mile distance on specified evenings, in two-hour periods, on Marine Parade, Gorleston, to raise money for the organisation which gives them the vital support they need. We encourage you to support them.
