Duncan and his son aged 11 are currently walking between one Stock Car World Semi-Final and the next! The Trust Fund Trek saw them leave the Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday Evening and will hopefully see them arrive in Skegness in time for the 2nd Semi-Final on Saturday 7th August
They are raising money for drivers and families of drivers injured or killed through stock car racing.
They will cover about 11 miles per day on a circuitous route – the coastal path is not yet complete and the waterways across the land require less than a direct route.
As of Wednesday, they had made it to Boston…
A long first day out of King’s Lynn (didn’t realise the ferry to West Lynn didn’t run on a Sunday!) Meant we covered 24km before a kind family took pity on us and let us ride 2 miles in the tailgate of their pickup to within a half-mile of our destination. We figure we covered the miles on the detour to the road crossing to West Lynn!
Day two saw us cover approx 20km to Holbeach Hurn where the campsite together with a swimming pool was welcome at the end of a long day.
On day three we headed to Surfleet. There needs to be more foot crossings to the River Welland because the only place to cross pretty much required a 1km walk into oncoming traffic on the A17. Not for the faint-hearted, or dads and their young sons.
We left Surfleet this morning and have arrived in Boston. Skegness Stadium feels a hop and a skip away now. We’ve done 50+miles and are in a groove now.
