In 2019, supported by tfwo great friends, our founder Rhian Mannings plan to walk five marathons – 26.2 miles – in different areas of our beautiful country Wales.
Each one will represent one of the day’s she coped alone with her husband after Georgie’s death. For the five days they held each other, cried together and tried to come to terms with their loss. Five days she will treasure but question forever.
Walk 1 - Tenby 14th February- Complete
Wow! What a day to remember. 22 people made this first walk so memorable and we could not of asked for better company or weather.
After leaving in the dark for a starlit walk along Tenby beach we then headed along the rugged coastal path and the hilly terrain for a further 11 hours before finally walking into Freshwater West to be greeted the most stunning sunset. An emotional day with lots of new friends made and one we will not forget.
Walk 2 - Snowdon 10th May - Complete
Snowdon was always going to be the toughest walk of them all and it certainly didn't disappoint! The terrain was rugged and often brutal but the views made up for the pain.
Once again new friends were made and countless jelly babies eaten, but everyone agrees they cant wait for Pen Y Fan
Walk 3 - Brecon 13th July - Complete
Sitting on our doorstep, The Brecon walk was always going to be a special walk. Yet again the sun shone and made the task of walking 26.2 miles something we all won't forget.
Walk 4 - Anglesey 12th November - Complete
After a 6 hour drive to Anglesey and numerous cups of coffee and crosswords, we were all ready to walk what promised to be the wettest walk to date, however the weather Gods once again were looking down on us and treated us to 30.2 miles of glorious sun ( yes, we are not sure why it wasn't 26.2 miles either)
