Here we are, then. Just one month to go until the end of 2016.

It’s inevitable that I’ve already achieved my personal target of eight-hundred miles. But, with weekend of flooding across the local region and a sharp drop in temperatures to sub-zero; how much walking did I manage in the month that was November?

Circuit of Bath Walk 2016 (Part 1)

Sunday 25th September 2016

This would be my third attempt at the Circuit of Bath walk since 2014, as I opted to participate in a different event on the same day last year.

It’s an annual event organised and in support of the charity Julian House. For my third year, I would again be looking to tackle the full twenty-miles of the circuit that surrounds the city.

#Walk1000Miles – September 2016

#Walk1000Miles – July 2016

I immediately feel as though this past month is going to be one in which I’ve ‘under-achieved’, when it comes to my overall mileage…

Circuit of Bath 2014

Already, it’s been six-days since I completed my second successive Circuit of Bath challenge. I didn’t take quite as many photos on this occasion – or, to put it another way; I didn’t photograph quite as much – because you’ll have already seen so much of it from last year’s event. But I hope you enjoy what I do have to share.

It began on a misty Sunday morning, near Lansdown

The Circuit of Bath is an annual fundraising event in support of Julian House. I’ve chosen to walk the full 20-mile circuit where as you can walk as little as 2 miles if you’d prefer.
