In 2011, I completed the Great Walk between Gold River, BC and Tahsis, BC (where I used to live).

I'll develop this page to chronicle that adventure, but here are some photos of the event.

My time from the start signal to Tahsis 63.5KM away was 10h34m - not too bad for someone that isn't really into long distance racing.

Here are some of the images I captured at and around the event. It was quite an experience and I really researched my footwear and my nutrition. Many gel packs, fresh socks, foot spray and bananas!
