If you're walking at a faster rate,you'll probably overtake us a couple or so days afterwards,won't you?

To be honesst C2Cer the only way I'm likely to pass anyone will be in the Sherpa Van!

Is there anyone doing it in June??
Is there anybody out there?......


I'm planning on June! although, not booked everywhere yet so I may be disapointed. Reckon I've left it too late now??

When booking late it is easier to find accomodation if you start the walk during weekdays rather than weekend.

Excellent point Slogs. For example the landlord at the pub in Ingleby Cross told us that their busiest night was, as I recall, a Tuesday. This was when the majority of Saturday starters reached this point. Flexible starts would certainly help with hot spots like Grasmere and Keld.

I agree, but I'm starting my C2C on a Tuesday, and although I'm planning on doing it quite quickly, I've still found accomadation hard to organise. Thankfully it's all done now!!

June 6th start for me and yes, booking accommodation was tricky in places, particularly Reeth (Swaledale marathon on the same day?) and Ingleby Cross

We are June also, arriving St Bees on the 8th and setting off on the 9th... we only booked accommodation last week, on Friday and had no real problems, some first choices were full, but all the B&B owners are so lovely, they always offered me an alternative number etc.. we are so excited about the trip!!

Starting midweek makes life much easier when finding accommodation
