This year’s Richmond Walking & Book Festival multi-day walk was the Swaledale Challenge featuring 66 miles of excellent walking over a 6-day period. The walk took in an extended Swaledale Marathon over 4 days, plus 2 additional walks to bring it back to Richmond.
4 walkers completed the Challenge including 3 SOC members: Dianne Hullah, Liz Robinson.and Sandra Hutchinson. All are relatively new members who completed the Swaledale Chain multi-day challenge walk at the 2015 Festival and then joined SOC.
Diane, Liz and Sandra, plus Sheila Dransfield who also completed the Challenge, received an Altberg Boot Care Kit plus a 2017 SOC Marathon Mug to mark their achievement. Well done to them all.
