On 17th and 18th September, Bryan will be enduring an Ultra challenge to hike from Kellaway’s site west of Bath, to Reading non-stop in 48 hours. No sleep, no naps, nothing, and just to make it a bit more of a challenge, he will be doing it alone. That’s 84 miles carrying a massive amount of water and everything else that he will need along the way, only stopping to top up water. The pack will weigh in excess of 40lbs.
Before the delightful virus, in 2018 Bryan hiked 27 miles a day for a week along the cliff paths of Cornwall and in 2019 he hiked 53.4 miles in 24 hours, so decided to up the proverbial ante! Hence the #84in48.
The plan is to have photo stops along the way with sponsors to get the hike out there and raise awareness for the Charity and whichever businesses want to sponsor in the trade as well as local press. Dexam Intl, Dulux, Home Hardware and Kellaway Building Supplies are already on board.
Bryan has set a fundraising goal of £10,000 but has hopes to exceed this to ensure those who need the help can.

Bryan said: “My hope is that this will be the biggest fundraising event of 2021 for us and will help us to meet the ever-growing pressure for our help. So come on guys and gals, step up to the plate and get involved! Follow the link and sponsor the hike!”
