Sponsored Walkdown, Saturday 2nd March 2019.
At 5 am on Saturday morning a group of 17 Hikers took on the Galactic challenge of
the 53rd Walkdown hike to become Hiking Jedi. All those involved were taken by car
to the Platres Trout Farm, where they began the 42Km hike. The temperature was a
cool 6 degrees and light rain was in the air. They continued to Mesa Potamos and
Siatas on towards Trimiklimi. The support team was with them all the way
consisting a number of cars. Throughout the day there were various check points.
After Trimiklimi there was a climb to Ayios Mamas, where they received the famous
53rd Walkdown T-shirt. and then they were taken by car to Kalochoiro. From
Kalochoiro they hiked to Louvaras, Amyrou Monestry, through Akrounda and on to
the finish, Yermasogiea Dam. 14 hikers finished in times from 9hr to 11hrs. The
53rd would like to thank all of them for taking up this challenge, which is definately
not for the faint hearted and all who sponsered them raising much needed funds.
