Southern 50 Challenge - Not Long Now

After months of preparation by the organisers and endless training walks by the teams its almost time for the big event.

I hope you are all prepared for the weekend be you a walker or a marshal. Its no secret that the current forecast shows that there will be light snow through Friday evening into Saturday morning. The current thick cloud cover in the Chilterns should keep the temperature just above freezing..
As for any challenge like this the key is to be prepared for the weather conditions you will be walking in. Weather in the British hills is very changeable so make sure you have adequate layers from base through to shell. Hat and gloves they are in your kit list wear them, a hat will stop lots of heat escaping through your head, bald or otherwise.
We will be keeping a watchful eye on the weather and road conditions and will update you if necessary.
We look forward to seeing you all at Tring School later today for what looks to be another fantastic Southern 50 Challenge. #Southern50
