By popular demand it’s the ‘big hill’ this Saturday. 13.5 miles and 1,500 feet of ascent, although there are the usual shortcuts and even extensions available. There will be refreshments at Golding Barn and there’s water at the Youth Hostel, of course. The pace will be steady, runbacks are de rigueur and conversation is encouraged. In the words of Ellie Goulding, ‘what are you waiting for’?
