Team Heart and Sole's Epic Adventure

Written by Carl

Here's a rather novel challenge. In the past, teams have turned their steps into miles and walked to the Mediterranean, trekked across the United States and strolled along the West Highland Way. This has to be one of the more unusual journeys though.

Lisa McCartney from Healthcare Improvement Scotland sent us some photos and an update on their epic journey to follow in the footsteps of Frodo and Gandalf through Middle Earth and the world of The Lord of the Rings. Lisa's team are spread across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Tayside and Shetland, so this has been a great way to keep everyone motivated and have a bit of fun at the same time.

Route Map

"We wanted to go somewhere a little different with our estimated 1400 miles of steps, so we're off to Middle Earth starting at the Shire (appropriate!) and heading to Mordor!

Hobbits at Bree

"We've morphed into Hobbits for the journey and have mapped out our progress. In our first week we managed to take 392,962 steps and have made it to Bree!"

I'm sure we'll hear more from the team and they get on over the coming weeks. Meanwhile, here's a picture of the team in their regular get-up.
