Nick Davis' 200 mile walk September 2010

On Sunday 5th September, Nick Davis, a 28 year old member of the Royal Navy, presently seconded to the Royal Marines will begin a challenge that has not been done before.   He will be setting off from the Queens Head public house in Meriden at 6am with the intention of walking the 40 mile circuit of "A Coventry Way" and being back at Meriden by 6pm approximately.  Then, every day for the next four days he intends repeating this challenge and so totalling 200 miles in the five days.  He will be wearing full uniform and carrying a full pack.  Nick is doing this in aid of the "Help for Heroes charity.

If anyone out there would like to support Nick's cause they can do so by logging on to www.bmycharity.com/coventryway200 and making a donation.  Also I feel sure he would appreciate any support on the route which is 70% off road but passes through the outskirts of Kenilworth, followed by Stoneleigh, Bubbenhall, Ryton, Wolston, Bretford, Brinklow, Ansty, Bedworth, Corley Ash, and Corley Moor before arriving back at Meriden.  If anyone is interested in any way and needs further information please get in touch with Bob Carey on 02476455251.  Or they can go to cheer Nick on at suitable points along the 200 miles - estimated times at key points are:

Others doing September Challenge?

Note also that Sunday 5th September would have been the date of the September Challenge.  Although the Challenge is now in April, we often hear of people who could not make the April date organising a mini Challenge of their own.  Watch out therefore for other individuals or small groups running or walking the ACW route on Sunday the 5th.
