I arrived at the start of the walk at 6am, completely in the dry!
I won't write much, I'd rather let the pictures tell the story. Briefly: it was very hot, a huge amount of fun, and the other 44,999 walkers seemed to enjoy it too. I crossed the start line at 6.30am and finished at 2.30pm.
25 miles done, 75 to go!
Oh, and that last photo IS the inside of a pub, but it was taken after I'd finished the walk. Honest.
