    2019 BG attempt

    Hi, before I get toooo old. After one failed attempt, 2 years of Achilles problems, next year is the year. If anyone is mulling over the prospect of a 2019 attempt and fancy joining me in the hills for fitness and navigational recces then please shout!

    Best Phil

    Yes all the best with training and planning Phil. My Round is this weekend and I'm also getting too old for this kind of fun!

    Just recovered from a broken foot but nowhere near as your Achilles playing up. Count me in on any recces but give me a month to get a bit of fitness back.
    And good luck to knightrunner hope all goes well

    All the very best. I'm down to do leg 3 this Sunday so if I find you in a ditch... I'll pick you up. BUT sure that won't be necessary !
    Best, Phil

    Phil, hope the foot gets back to 100%. Please drop me a note when you feel suitably fit and recovered and we'll get out there.

    Best, Phil

    Hello guys.

    I am hoping to have a go next year myself. Its been a long time coming with a couple of attempts being put off due to a couple of reasons. 2014 i was planning on having a go but then discoverd my wife was pregnant with our second so that was that .
    2016 i spent the summer on the route with a view to have an attemt 2017. Unfortuanlty in September 2016 i started with Peroneal tendonitis which has been with me since. The rehab is going well and im back running . It maybe optimistic as the ankle only feels 95% to the good and still getting twinges but im hoping things will be ok. I will be 42 next year so it feels only right that i should have a go. If all goes to plan with my training, 24 hrs will still be a very optimistic target but i need to give it a crack before the zimmer comes out!

    Anyway ,i live in Mersyside so only a short trip up the M6. I'd be happy to join in on any recce days if the pace permits .

    Regards

    Karl
