Trailwalker - the home strait

Wessex Archaeology - Sun, 2015-07-26 09:08
Checkpoint 9 and dawn breaks cold, grey and slightly damp. A pink glow to the east tells us the sun is about to rise, but spots on the windscreen also herald the rain that is forecast. Checkpoint 8 to 9 is the longest stretch of Trailwalker and we wait for our team, Mark, Dave, Vi and Susan, all now walking through the pain barrier. For Operation Nightingale and Project Florence, we are privileged to work with service men and women, all heroes and do what little we can to help their rehabilitation process. The Team Wessex Support Crew have been fortunate to work with our own Trailwalker heroes, we are all so very proud of them. When they come limping through the checkpoint, there'll still be 10km to go - they'll make it!   By Andrew Crockett, Regional Manager South

Trailwalker - blazing a trail!

Wessex Archaeology - Sat, 2015-07-25 14:46
 Checkpoint 3 and our Trailwalkers are ploughing on at an impressive pace, with the first 30k knocked off in just 6 hours. The Gurkhas had everything impeccably well-organised from the free breakfast at the start, to the stirring sound of the Gurkha pipers blasting out Scotland the Brave as our team set off bang on 7am. Next stop will be Checkpoint 4, about 40km along the route, which will be about 3pm - getting close to halfway now!! Sponsorship continues to climb, and we're just short of £2.5k now, so anything spare will be very welcome indeed https://www.justgiving.com/Wessex-Archaeology/   By Andrew Crockett, Regional Manager South

Trailwalker 2015, there's no going back...

Wessex Archaeology - Sat, 2015-07-25 08:08
So, the trucks were loaded in Rochester and Salisbury, and our intrepid band of Trailwalkers Mark, Dave, Susan and Vi, supported by our Chief Executive Chris alongside Lisa, Rob and Andy, have rendezvoused at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park start point and registered, alarmingly filling in next of kin forms. They then enjoyed an excellent complimentary carb-loading pasta tea courtesy of the Gurkhas. The organisation is second to none, even in some atrocious weather, but we are reassured the weather will be much improved for the team’s 7am start (ouch!) today. Sponsorship continues to flood in, with nearly £2.5k raised so far. This includes some fantastic generosity from, amongst many others, Opti-cal Survey Equipment, our strategic partners Thomson Ecology and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC). Always room for a bit more sponsorship though…   By Andrew Crockett, Regional Manager South
