Finish/Start

I was just going through some images I took on a short holiday to Cornwall and I came across this – and thought it was most appropriate for the time of year.

This is the start/finish line at Lands End in the UK – I presume there is an equivalent at John o’ Groats in the north east of Scotland. Lands End to John o’ Groats is our famous point to point race distance – effectively the longest distance between two inhabited British points on the mainland. Many an epic tale of endurance, grit and determination has taken place – walking, running, cycling, etc. It’s 874 miles (1407km). Apparently, there are approaching 50 records including unicycle and lawnmower. Of course, sponsorship for various charities features in most of the attempts.
