Getting ready for my next walking challenge

This month I have finally decided to do it again. I am of course talking about the Three Peaks of Yorkshire walking challenge! This means it will be my third attempt and this time I cannot fail 🙂 So I am getting ready for it and I have already laid out a plan. I have even managed to sway some colleagues at work to follow me on this journey; they have never done it before and they really seem to be committed to it. We have decided that the big day will be during that Bank Holiday weekend in May (25-27). Now I still need to go through some preparation and I thought I would ask you for some tips about training routes and equipment.
