'Every Road' Challenge Ends On Airport Runway

Tim Ringsdore has complete his challenge to walk every road in Jersey by taking a wander down the airport runway.

He's covered the equivalent distance of St Malo to Madrid, without leaving the island.

"The government told me there were 466 official roads in the island, but to get to all of those it's taken me nearly 700 mile to walk that.

It has been a brilliant challenge, a fantastic experience, and obviously raised a lot of awareness for the JSPCA and Autism Jersey."

Tim, who is the CEO of the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority, started his bid to walk every road in January.

He hoped to raised £2,500. He has smashed that target and has now collected more than £5,000 in donations.

Tim has been telling Channel 103 about his favourite - and least favourite- walks.

"Walking down into Rozel Bay, which I think is one of the most beautiful small bays in our island.

St Lawrence was the probably the quietest parish.

I walked under the underpass and through the tunnel - that's not so enjoyable."

After more than 186 hours on his feet, his final walk was along the airport runway.

 

 

"It has been tough at times, but this island is so beautiful.

It doesn't matter where you go.  Whether you are walking 20 or 30 miles in a day, no matter how hard it is, it's just a pleasure to see the island in it's glory - no matter what the weather. is to be honest!"
