Genevieve and Fabian Vinet successfully completed their 50-kilometer Thames Path Challenge Trek on Saturday. Despite having set themselves a target of completing the Walk within twelve hours, they managed to finish the entire Challenge in exactly 10 hours and 30 minutes.
‘The faster pace did come at a price,’ explains Fabian. ‘At around the 26km mark the pain set in and after stopping for lunch at the 29km point, I was literally almost unable to move and for a few minutes thought Genevieve would have to continue without me. Thankfully the painkillers and muscle-relaxant spray helped, as did the adrenaline and determination, and so we managed to soldier on.’
