Swept Along by the Lyke Wake Challenge! 09th July 2022.

I’d like to report a successful crossing of the Lyke Wake walk by my boyfriend (Amir Arjandi) and myself (Mary Flynn) on Saturday July 9th ?

No Pain at all ……………yet!

Making full use of Natural Resources. Good plan!

Praying to be left on the route under pile of stones?

We set off refreshed from Osmotherley at 3:45am and finished at/crawled in to Ravenscar at 10:45pm completing it in 19hrs.

We’d like to join the club please ?

It was a really wonderful experience if a little difficult at the end ??

The end is in sight

we were grateful for the good weather, although fully prepared with our rain gear too which slowed us down considerably!…………I suspect the runners felt sorry for us with our big packs on 🙂

After finishing, I can’t believe anyone could run it! Very well done to everyone who was out that day ??

The Trig Point at last …………….

Thanks for recording our crossing.

It would be an honour to have a mention on the website, thanks very much 🙂

Please can you also pass our thanks along to a couple of people who helped us out along the way? There was a lovely gentleman taking part in the run who set us off on the right track at Osmotherley, and another great guy who enabled us to finish by kindly giving us water at the last check point when we hadn’t any left! He really saved the day and we’re extremely grateful ?

Many Thanks
