Me and Emma have just completed the sandstone trail, all 34 miles over 2 days, 17th / 18th March. It's was more like a tough mudder!! A tough couple of days but we done it, 19 miles the first day with us ended at the pheasant Inn and 15 miles on the Sunday ending in Whitchurch. Over the 2 days much to enjoy but the overall memory will be fields and more fields of mud!! Just making it a really tough experience. When you start this journey it's something you have to finish. Not many places you can call it a day and have someone come and pick you up. Sounds like I'm complaining but I'm not. The fact we finished it all especially with not just the under foot conditions but also having to compete with the beast from the east 2 will stay with us for ever.
If it's in your budget stay at the pheasant inn, we didn't but should off. Take plenty of provisions because their are little if any places to buy a snack.
Walk it when their has been a long dry spell!!
When you start each day their is no turning back.
It might sound like I'm being negative but I'm not. Me and emma haven't done a walk like this before and their is no doubt the weather conditions made it so much more harder than we expected. However we completed 34 miles in 2 days and this experience will stay with us for ever. We might even do it again, definitely in the summer when bone dry and definitely stay over night in the pheasant Inn.
