The only conclusion we can draw here at BRAG is [...]
It was with a heavy heart, not to mention heavy limbs, that the Manwalk 2012 team set off this morning for the last 15 miles but happily they all did, and they all made it to Fort William this afternoon. Many congratulations from everyone at BRAG and no doubt Enham. A brilliant achievement. And loving the [...]
Happily the whole team have survived day four, and the combined lack of mobility and enthusiasm for Guinness at the end of the day have apparently caused much local hilarity. Tomorrow sees the team completing 100+ miles and conquering the West Highland Way. Followed by Ben Nevis by way of digestif…
Unsurprisingly it gets harder every day. The team were walking for 10 hours yesterday and today is set to be the hardest day yet. Everyone is exhausted and although the sun has been punishing the promised rain today will probably be even worse. Manwalk 2012 is raising profile and funds for Enham. Please support them [...]

Day one ended with the team looking somewhat more weary than they did setting off, when it was smiles all round. Apparently the West Highland Way is a beast! You can support the team on justgiving – they’re putting themselves through this for the UK charity Enham.

On May 6th, Ian picked up the rushes and took them back to the hospital. His son was still critically ill, (luckily the worst hadn’t happened, as I had anticipated); little Henry was stable at least. Having a chance to look through what we’d shot appeared to be a welcome distraction for Ian. In the [...]
