Welcome to our website...

Alex, Chris and Rob will walk the breadth of the country in aid of the "Hounds for Heroes" charity. The epic walk takes place in April/May 2012, the sole purpose to raise as much money as possible for the newly formed charity. The 190 mile walk goes from the east coast at Robin Hood's bay to the west coast of Cumbria at St. Bee's. The aim is to wild camp the vast majority of the walk, taking in the glorious Yorkshire moorlands to the stunning Lake District scenery.

All three of the lads are dog lovers. Alex owning a Jack Russell along with Chris and Rob both being proud owners of Chocolate Lab's. If you are kind enough to donate, please visit one of the pages on the left. As the saying goes, every little helps. Please take time to visit the "Hounds for Heroes" website to find out more of what they do.

We've been lucky enough to have been sponsored by some great companies! BeWell Expedition Foods have supplied us with breakfast meals for the whole trip. Wayfayrer have supplied us with meals and puddings. Tubular Fells have kindly donated a Wainwright Tubular fells map to auction off at the end of the walk.
