I loved the day! It was challenging, as expected, but I loved meeting new people and hearing why The Passage was important to them. Everyone was lovely and supportive, it felt like we were a team who had known each other for years, rather than hours. Ruby, South Downs Trekathon participant
Just a great day with good people!
