9781852845018: Three Peaks, Ten Tors: And Other Challenging Walks in the UK

A guidebook by veteran walker Ronald Turnbull to walking a long-distance or challenge route in the UK - with both serious and humorous approaches. Plus notes on planning and undertaking 15 such routes throughout the country, from the National Three Peaks Challenge to the Dartmoor Ten Tors route. This book looks at what it takes to do a long-distance or challenge walk - the mental toughness, experience, the slight madness - plus notes on planning and undertaking the best such routes. The author intersperses sound advice with wry recollections of his experience of the National Three Peaks Challenge and other such routes throughout the British Isles. Suitable for aspiring or novice long-distance walkers, the guide provides tips on how to minimise the suffering, stay safe, raise money for charity and find a surprising amount of enjoyment along the way. Old hands will enjoy comparing their experiences with the author's reminiscences of the highs and lows of long-distance routes. The book includes information on 15 long-distance and challenge routes with route outlines and schedules and tips on minimizing the environmental impact of challenge routes. There are also suggestions for new 'three peaks' and other long-distance routes.

About the Author:

Ronald Turnbull lives close to the Carsphairn and Lowther Hills. He was one of the first people to walk the Southern Upland Way. He is a runner as well as a walker, and in 1986 was awarded the Long Distance Trophy of the Fell Running Association for a non stop journey over the 148 hills of Southern Scotland. Outside the Southern Uplands he walks, climbs and runs in the Highlands and sometimes in England.
