The walk is a demanding 271 miles up the back bone of England over the roughest, hilliest and physically testing areas that England can throw at you especially in some places around the Cheviots and Peak district.
I Hope this guide provides usefull free information for all planning on walking the way. If you have any updated information plase contact me [email protected]
Most people are able to walk it take around 18 walking days to complete it. However, I was able to walk it in 17 days with one rest day, to stock up on supplies, and also re-gain that vital energy.
Not only does rest day allow you to have relaxation in some of the fantastic destinations you will find your self in. Also it is almost physically impossible unless you have plenty of walking experience to do 17 solid walking days over this terrain especially if you are carrying a heavy rucksack.
The Pennine Way is one national trial once you have walked its entire length you will never forget.
If you want to be a Pennine way record breaker, this is what you have to break.
If you are on your own you can try running the Pennine way faster than in 3 days 5 hours and 21 minutes or an average of 85 miles a day or if you are with your family or friends try breaking the relay record of 52 hours and 32 minutes or 125 miles a day.
