The Purbeck Odyssey 2014

DSC 0703

The Purbeck Odyssey took place in blazing sunshine on Sunday 18th May and was a resounding success with all those who walked.  Our thanks go to everyone who took part.   

Recognition must go to Graham Baker, who ran the Marathon Challenge in 6.5 hours at an average speed of 14.4 mph - an amazing achievement! 

The Photos of the event taken by Kevin Rankin are now available on his Rankin Inspired website and can be downloaded by following the instructions available there.  There is also a selection in our Gallery.

Funds raised so far stand at over £8000 - thank you everyone who sponsored a walker!
