The walk will end at Glanford Park, home of Scunthorpe United on Saturday 27th April 2019 around 12 noon or thereabouts.
Day 1 is 22 miles from Bradford, through Birstall, Batley, Wakefield, past Nostell Priory to Ackworth. A few hills along the way, the toughest day.
Day 2 is 20 miles, from Ackworth, through Campsall, Askern and Stainforth, arriving in Thorne. Fewer hills, less steep, the second half is largely flat.
Day 3 is 14+ miles, from Thorne, passing Althorpe and Keadby, through Gunness, arriving at Glanford Park. Largely flat thankfully!
Days 1 and 2 are being covered by the author (Chris), his son (Dan) and son’s girlfriend (Alice).
Day 3 we are joined by one of my work colleagues (Karen Harper – a Bradford City fan) and a friend (Brian Smith – a Scunthorpe United fan). We are promised a warm welcome by Scunthorpe United (the Iron) on arrival.
Earlier this evening I was interviewed by Iron Bru, a fans forum and widely respected regular podcast. I must give them a big Thank You for allowing me time to chat about the Iron, the Bradford City game but mostly about this event/project. Very much appreciated!
I am also informed I am being interviewed again before the Bradford game kicks off by BBC Radio Humberside, around 2.30pm inside the ground.
I cant wait to get on with it…!
