For some people the best way to celebrate the Jubilee bank holiday weekend was to complete a 100-mile walking / running event the Peak District. One of those people was Todmorden Harrier Charles Colburn who took part in his first 100-mile event. ‘Prince’ Charles successfully completed the event and was supported along the way by several fellow Harriers.
