Helen and Mike ‘Double-Double’

Congratulations to Helen and Mike on completing the “double/ double”!!

Keith (The President) writes:

“A fresh looking Helen Pritchard and Mike Zeidan having just completed a quadruple Marsden/ Edale starting at 6am Friday and finishing about 3 pm on the Saturday afternoon at the Ramblers Rest. Incredible effort following in the footsteps of Geoff Bell and John Crummett who I believe did a double/ double in 1994. Congratulations to you both!”

  1. It was a delight to come down to Edale from a modest Hayfield – Edale with J R to see Helen and Mike after their EMEME. It is a long time since it’s conception and hard-won delivery by JC and myself.
    We were inspired by the exploits of Ted Dance and his companions, who in their turn followed Brockbank, Entwisle etc.
    Long may this Rucksack Club madness continue!

  2. A fabulous effort (and sincere apologies to Mike for mis-naming him when we met in the Ramblers).

    Having in the past managed several M-E doubles – well, I’m knocked out by this achievement which you both seem to have managed with casual grace.
