C2C: England’s Coast-to-Coast + ali-loop of Lakes Peaks – June, 2018


England’s Coast to Coast is roughly 192 miles from the Irish Sea to the North Sea.

I want to encourage in others the ambition to devise with the aid of maps their own cross-country marathons and not be merely followers of other people’s routes.
— A. Wainwright, A Coast to Coast Walk

Created by the illustrious fell walker Alfred Wainwright, the Coast to Coast is an unofficial and often unsigned path that passes through three contrasting national parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors.

The last time in Yorkshire, I ran.

Which pretty well describes my plan of no plan aside from ‘wild camping’ and catching a bus from Robin Hood’s Bay back to the airport and home mid-June.
