Welcome to The 500 miles. We're fresh-air loving bunch of people who love to go walking and exploring. We don't walk 500 miles in one go. Promise!
I've been organising hikes for friends and groups for over half a decade, mainly because I desperately needed to escape the city (cheaply). But also because I really enjoy showing everyone some of the amazing places I've discovered over the years.
I don't make any money out of this, it's all about giving everyone a great day out without the hassle of organising stuff. But if you feel the urge to buy me a pint at the end I couldn't possibly say no. ;)
