It went largely under the radar just how much effort Ed Morris put in to the Tinsel Trail.
He volunteered for a little light washing up but was soon taking on much bigger responsibilities to take care of a totally blind participant. So, Ed ended up spending huge amounts of time with multiple reccies and then preparing and researching guide running. He took time off work to fetch and transport Louise and did you see the state of him when he got back? He had blood pouring from multiple cuts and scrapes where he’d clattered through the bushes and was covered in mud from where he’d taken the falls to keep Louise on her feet.
Of his own initiative, Ed also enlisted some ladies from his gym to join the event so that they could stay near and help him out if needed.
Good news, we have reinstated the Wenlock Olympian Walk into our calendar. This year we will keep to the 50 mile clockwise route via Holdgate, Abdon Burf, Craven Arms, Acton Scott and Hope Bowdler. Entries will open Jan 8th. More information soon.
Are you joining us on the Telford Tinsel Trail on Sat. 23rd Dec.?
Final preparations are under way for the LDWA Marches Group Christmas walk.
Several group members walked the route last weekend to make a final check on the route.
We noticed a couple of points in the route description that could have been clearer so we’ve made 4 small edits (in paras 16.17, 19 and 24).
The revised RD can be downloaded here.

Entry details for all our challenge walks are on the main LDWA site and of course in Strider
