Three men begin quest to complete the Cotswold Way in three days

Compass Holidays and Carry-a-Bag would like to wish Gary Newman and his friends the best of luck on starting their three day trek along the Cotswold Way.

The Cotswold Way is a 104 mile walking trail that runs North-South from the small Cotswold town of Chipping Campden to the historic city of Bath. The journey through picturesque villages and luscious countryside normally takes experienced walkers a minimum of six days to complete walking on average of 17 miles a day; however these three men have decided to conquer the route in just three days!

The trio will be walking up to 34 miles each day, the equivalent of four marathons in three days to raise money for charities close to their hearts, the British Lung Foundation and Pancreatic Cancer UK. Please help support them on their trek .
