Greenways Challenge January Update

"Only for a Camino Challenge would I revert back to being a tourist in a

city I have lived in for over 42 years. Double irony is the parks the Diana

Princess of Wales Memorial Walk covers have been my regular venue

for training runs of all description over the last six years, I work in the

area, but I have never had to follow a predetermined path. In fact, the

route markers have only occasionally entered the fringes of my

consciousness. Similarly the landmarks the walk passes are so familiar

to me they have become invisible. Having to study the route of the walk

closely, to search out the markers and run the challenge has brought

back into focus for me how beautiful Central London, it's parks and

landmarks really are. So thanks Caminos, your events always enrich me

in one way or another."
