The Pennine Way: 50 years old
What better way to use the latest Salomon Boots which have arrived at Outdoor Look than turning to the nation’s first and favourite trail ‘The Pennine Way’ which celebrates its 50th birthday this month.
The Pennine Way National Trail is a 268 mile (429 Km) walking route from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. It crosses some of the finest upland landscapes in England, from the Peak District, through the Yorkshire Dales, across the North Pennines and over Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland to the Cheviots. You can spend as little or as long as you like walking on the Pennine Way National Trail. Some people like to walk the full length while others like to spend a week, a few days or even a day at a time taking in spectacular lengths of the route. Most full length walkers allow between 16 to 19 days to walk the Way.
The Way follows the Pennines – it is hilly and in places remote. Some sections are harder than others. Know your limitations - the first couple of days on the Pennine Way are quite hard and if you are unprepared may be a bit much - do a few weekends hill walking in preparation! If you aren’t sure perhaps try a circular walk on the Trail, or walk some of the gentler sections in the Yorkshire Dales or North Pennine valleys.
This is the perfect terrain for the Salomon Mens Discovery Hiking Boots as it is built to withstand the miles whatever the conditions, sun, rain or snow. The EVA midsole takes care of the shock of miles of hiking, and the waterproof breathable Gore-Tex membrane keeps your foot dry, even in the worst conditions. It also has a high profile for increased ankle support, stability and protection.
