    If they had set it up so you could start & finish at your local Legion and pass through some central point (Like Leeds), I reckon I would be up for it.
    I did raise point on the rblr site and suggest a start point at Ft William and one at dover but still passing through leeds this was rejected for admin problems i.e getting volunteers to man each site.
    Also it was said finishing at one site added to the sense of achievement and being part of a team.

    Unsure of which route to take mind, last year was anti-clockwise North, but might do Clockwise South for a change........

    Good stuff.

    I'm planning on doing the Northern route since I don't get up there much. Haven't decided which direction yet.

    remember on average the northern routes could be 10 degrees colder than the southern ones

    always remember that you are absolutely unique, just like everyone else.
