Delamere Forest Dot To Dot Challenge

The challenge

Run to all the 66 posts around Delamere Forest in order. It is about 17 miles. In March 2013, post 1, 31, 33 and 65 didn’t exist. Post 31 was marked up again by June 2013. As post 1 didn’t exist when I did it we started at a post in the middle of a field in a small valley near to where it is shown on the map (see photo).
