Two women tackled a gruelling 55km hike amidst harsh weather conditions.

Tanya Clark and Holly Gilman embarked on their journey along Wherryman’s Way, from Great Yarmouth to Norwich on April 15.

They braved strong winds, torrential rain, a hailstorm and thunder, ensuring their voyage was particularly arduous.

The pair wanted to undertake this long-distance hike to condition themselves for future hikes including tackling 100km later in the year.

Ms Clark said: “I’m amazed at what we were capable of, considering the crazy weather.

"It’s made me more determined for the 100km in June.

"We are so lucky to live in Norfolk with such beautiful landscapes to take in, and I’m grateful for the well-kept paths and signage along the Wherryman’s Way.

"What a privilege it is that I can physically take part in a challenge for charity.”

Her hiking companion, Ms Gilman, said: “This was the hardest walk I’ve done to date.

"We were prepared for the rainstorm forecast but mixing that in with the lack of shelter, the hail coming at us horizontally in the wind and simply battling wind the entire way made that so tough.

"However, we’ve proven that we make a great team, and we laughed our way through every challenge.

"I am so grateful to have Tanya to complete the June hike with.”

The women didn't reach their goal due to bad weather slowing them down and an unexpected roadblock at Surlingham.

Their late start led them to hit this block by 11pm.

Without any path, they needed to walk on dark country roads.

This became risky, so they stopped their walk at Bramerton.

Their GPS shows they covered 55km or about 32 miles.

Ms Clark and Ms Gilman are fundraising for CALM and children with additional needs, respectively.
