Steve's epic challenge for SSAFA

Steve Athawes

Steve walked 1,168 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats. He did it in 93 days with 30kg in his backpack.

 

Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. For me it was a life changing experience, it really was.

“One of the big things with a walk like this is not so much the physical side, it’s the mental side of it – that can be more of a challenge. Every day had its own challenges in terms of weather and terrain, so you just view it day over day. It’s a bit like the old Chinese proverb: a journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step.

Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. For me it was a life changing experience, it really was.”
