'Coast-to-Coast' Success

One of SRC's long-standing members, Martin Spires (see the picture below) has recently completed yet another successful attempt at the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) long-distance walk.

Martin set off on his adventure on the 29th May and took 12 days to complete this (his fifth) C2C traversal. Well done Martin!

People who complete the walk are eligible for a C2C badge similar to that shown in the picture below. The yellow line in this badge depicts (roughly) the route of the C2C from St Bees (on the West Coast) {NX 962 116} through Kirkby Stephen {NY 775 085} to Robin Hoods Bay (on the East Coast) {NZ 953 049} - a distance of about 190 miles.

During his 12-day expedition, Martin kept a detailed record of his experiences and also took lots of photographs. Use the buttons below to see his weblog and a selection of his photographs.


As well as being a walker, Martin is also a keen cyclist. Later this year he hopes to complete a 'double traversal' of the C2C - on his bike.
