230: 100 Mile Walk Special with Jim and John

This episode is all about our amazing nine day, 100 mile hike across Yorkshire and Cumbria! We are joined by our travelling companions, Jim, aka Ellie's Dad, and John, aka Helen's brother / the silver fox. 

Tune in as we discuss the highs and the lows. You'll find out who farted the most, who cried the most, and who wore the same pair of trousers for nine days. Plus: Ellie's Dad reveals the essential item he takes on every walk, his technique for dealing with cows, and how many penises he's seen. 

(Sorry about the sound quality for the first ten minutes - it was a bit windy - but stick with it, as the rest of the ep was recorded in a pub!)

We would like to dedicate this episode to the awesome Sheila Gordon, author of the Lady Anne's Way guidebook. We literally couldn't have done it without her. What a legend. You can find out more about the walk at ladyannesway.co.uk.

And if you fancy getting out there, why not take on the Borne 60 Miles in June Challenge? Borne is a brilliant charity that funds life-saving research into preventing premature birth. Around 15 million babies are born too soon every year, so there is lots of work to be done. It's dead easy to sign up - just head to the Borne Facebook page, then register for your free t-shirt and activate your fundraiser. Get fit and feel like a great humanitarian at the same time - what's not to like?
