How to follow our progress on Offa’s Dyke

After over a year of planning and training, we are about to start our challenge to walk the 177 mile Offa’s Dyke trail – we are currently at Chester Services, about an hour or so from the start in Prestatyn.

There are several ways you can follow our progress, keep updated with how we are getting on, and interact with us as we walk.

Live Updating Map

You can find our live updating map at – the map will initially load with our progress for the current day (it automatically updates), but you can select previous routes from the drop down on the right hand side.

The page also has our latest tweets, photos and audioboos – both around the sides and on the map itself!


Everything we get up to will be posted to our twitter account: offasdyke4ms. You don’t need an account to follow our “tweets”, but you will need one if you wish to reply.

Alex will also be tweeting from his account: winkysmileyface.

All our replies are texted to us – so they will be read and will help us keep motivated during the walk! We will try to reply to as many as possible as we are going on.


Unfortunately the Facebook Group is quite hard to update remotely, but both Alex and I have linked our twitter accounts to appear on our personal Facebook pages – we will try and catch up with comments during breaks!


Every couple of days the plan is to do a short blog post updating you on our progress!


It is still not too late to donate – every “You have a new donation” email will really help us keep going in the rain and wind!
