The Lake District Mighty Hike on 13/7/19 in support of Macmillan Cancer was spearheaded by Toyota Service Manager, Nicky Tyrrell, in part to an approaching milestone birthday but mostly feeling overwhelmed by how many people within her own sphere - family, friends and colleagues - had been affected by cancer.
Her hiking troop consisted of Steve Hazelhurst (Group FD), Sharon Hancock (Group Accounts), Alan Clayton (Toyota Parts Sales), Sharon Antrobus (Group Admin), Ellie Bartrop (Toyota Service Advisor). It would be fair to say that no level of practice could prepare for the terrain they encountered - rocky, steep and lethal. Walking some distance in a single file with eyes on their feet instead of taking in the beautiful scenery.
Just under 12 hours of walking, 66,000 steps taken and 4,068 calories burned.
Blisters galore, bruises, lost toe nails, sore joints, high emotions, exhaustion.
Enjoyed it? You bet!
Do it again? Certainly!
Money raised? £2,100 so far...
