The long awaited video from the 2015 TGO Challenge is now here for all to enjoy in two parts each just over the hour in duration.

In it I�ll show you the route we took on the maps, plus some suggestions as to alternatives. You�ll also see images from the trip and of course some video shot each day as we undertook the 200 miles walk.

If you wish to further enjoy the experience as it happens, do download the 9 part audio series from this year which gives you even more background information and may add to the information you can find in these videos.

This link will take you to the whole list of 54 podcasts dedicated to the TGO Challenge since 2006, interviews with various characters, their thoughts on the trip and of course the endless conversation about gear and how to lighten the load or improve performance.

If you wish to hear the most recent 100 episodes from our Podcast series then click here and fill up your media player.

If you wish to hear ALL the previous 300+ archived episodes then click here.

If you are an iTunes user just click here and the feed will automatically open your iTunes software and be added to your list. This will provide you with the full listing of podcast for you to download at your leisure. You can disable this at any time.

You can also search in this website in the little box over on the right of this page for TGO Challenge and you�ll find everything audio and video to view.

This is the third video I�ve done relating to the Challenge and it is probably the last. Apart from stopping and starting and trying to shoot video as we walk, it has taken 2 weeks of solid editing and preparation, which is may be an indication why it takes until now (October) to finally release the completed version.

I did say in this video I would provide a gear listing to indicate how we maintained our base weight to below 10kg. As far as I can remember here it is.
