You got the route yet? Or just dropped on you on the day?

They’ve not confirmed the actual route, so I guess we will find out in the morning.

Shared on our social media sites.

Cheers for that!

I'm assuming walk to the canal at spaghetti and then walk along that until the Waterpark?

They haven’t told us the route. Just hoping for good weather!  ::)
They can also get on at the Swan and Mitre. We walked from there to the Dog and Doublet along there during lockdown. It's a loooong walk!

Well, we are having lunch in Sutton Coldfield, so I don’t think we are going by the canal.

Depends if they mean the town or the district. You might take some of the route via Witton lakes to Sutton Park, then to Sutton centre. After that might be country lanes OR public paths to skirt the Belfry and on to BM. You can then look at the new Hotel there for the players.

The way it came down in Sutton from about 10am to 1130, it might have been a sponsored swim.

Haha, thanks everyone!

Yeah, was torrential for a while, got absolutely soaked through. Home now, showered, cuppa, and waiting on a curry arriving.

That was hard. In total we’ve walked over 15 miles. It was harder because of having to slow down and make stops for slower walkers, and for frequent breaks.

My fella got very blistered feet and was really struggling, but he got to the end. It didn’t help that a wanker in a car covered him in head to toe speeding through a giant puddle.  :(

That would be my problem as well. I find it bad enough having to slow down for the Mrs.

I once did a long charity walk to raise money for a lad at Birmingham Children's Hospital that went through a busy Birmingham City centre... dressed as Bugs Bunny. Not one of those proper mascot costumes either, the shit ones where you can see your face and you have his decapitated head resting on your own. Had fun with it though, I was a big Jackass fan at the time (I'm a moron) so was doing Party Boy dancing around a confused public. Anyway... what you dressing as? 😀
