A massive thanks to members of the Cambridge University Rambling Club and Oxford University Walking Club who took part in this year’s Varsity March and through their efforts raised an impressive £380 for the Gatehouse.
This annual event involves attempting to walk 81 miles from Oxford to Cambridge in less than 48 hours, and this year the course was completed by Hannah Cornwall, John Lewis, Ashley Pennington, Vincent Thuard, Shruti Dhaundiyal, Adam Ashing, Stephanie Smith and the ever reliable Dylan the Sheep! In addition Joe Xia walked from Oxford to Lilley (47 miles) and Chris Irving and Charles Yin walked from Oxford to Luton (43 miles). A further 9 walkers managed the 23 miles from Oxford to Aylesbury. Well done to all of them!
Below is a montage of photos from the various stages of the walk.
