[W]alking 268 miles across moors and bogs along Britain’s toughest and oldest National Trail – and climbing higher than Mount Everest in the process – is not easily forgotten.
But just in case anyone needs reminding that they have completed the Pennine Way, they can now have their own, personalised certificate.
There is now a range of options available to impress friends and family. A high-quality glossy certificate featuring Stoodley Pike is available for just £4 including postage. There is a simpler design to print at home for free, after completing a short survey about the trail. The information from the survey will help to manage the trail better in future. There is also a new range of merchandise available to buy, including fabric sew-on badges, mugs, and bespoke souvenir signs.
Proceeds from the sale of certificates and other merchandise all contribute towards the maintenance and promotion of the Pennine Way.
Trail Officer Heather Procter said: “It doesn’t matter when you walked the trail, or whether you completed it in one go or over a number of attempts. Each certificate is personalised with your name and the date you completed it.”
And, for the first time, certificates and merchandise are also available for the Pennine Bridleway, the 205-mile trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders that runs parallel to the Pennine Way.
