Rest Post 3 Day 2 / Rustplaats 3 Dag 2

The first of the BDWF walkers to stop has just left us, expecting more soon. The heat is much as it was yesterday, squash is ready for the walkers as they arrive.

Coach Times for Day 2 / Bus Tijden voor Dag 2

Coach times will be 30 minutes early for the 30 and 40km walkers!!!

Tuesday 19 July – Early start on Wednesday (30, 40 and 40 military)

For the second marching day, the organisation decided to start thirty minutes earlier for the 30 km, 40km and 40 km military. The 50/55km starts at the scheduled time. Eat and drink sufficiently this evening. Try to do as many kilometres as possible in the coolness of the morning. Keep drinking during the day.

Sports Hall Night 1 / Sporthal Nacht 1

Lights are out and most people are sleeping; except of course the wonderful crew who keep the place running whilst we sleep.

Dave, Carl, Sue and Lisa make sure all the walkers and support staff are woken up at the right time and solve any problems that occur overnight.

Shh… when you come back from the walk they are still trying to get their beauty sleep!

Rest Post 3 / Rustplaats 3

The 30 km team has just left RA3, almost all walkers have been through.

Dom says, “it’s rather hot!” or words to that effect!

We can’t disagree, it was quoted as 32 degrees at 3 o’clock. Not long now, and then back to base.

Barry and his merry band of cadets have just been through. All feeling the heat but still singing load and proud. Our two boys in scrubs are here looking cool and comfortable and enjoying the day. Not far to go now
