Luton – Hertford Castle Walk (20 Miles)

You may have seen my recent charity walk from Luton to Hertford across my socials. It was a route I planned myself and I am more than happy to share for anyone that wants to give it a go! 

On The Day:

We set off from Leagrave Park at 7.30am and headed through Luton and into the Hertfordshire countryside, reaching Hertford Castle just after 3pm. We walked a huge 45,000 steps!

I can’t lie it was a real struggle for those final 5 miles, but there was no way I was stopping even if I crawled there! (I think I may have actually suggested this around mile 18).

For anyone thinking of doing this walk, I would say BE PREPARED! My feet were covered in blisters by the end, I could barely walk! So good walking shoes, medical supplies and of course, plenty of food & drink to keep you going.

Before I share all the route details, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored myself & Steven! We managed to raise ยฃ600 for Keech Hospice Care, which was just fantastic news.
