Topic - Coast to coast walk in a week

Joemanglerocks - on 06 Jan 2014
Basically I want to walk the Wainwright coast to coast route in a week (7-8 days). I want to go solo and I plan to bivvy and/or wildcamp so that I'm nice and flexible about how much mileage I can get under my belt each day. But after having a light google I can't seem to find much evidence of others having done the route in a similar timescale, although there must be loads who have.

Really I'd just like to get an idea of how do-able it is in a week. I haven't done a great deal of proper/distance walking before (the Torres Del Paine 'W', a few munros and the obvious UK mountains), but I'm reasonably fit (run 20-25 miles a week for the last year or so) and I've got a couple of months to train up before I'd want to attempt the walk. I appreciate I won't be able to properly take in my surroundings and enjoy the experience to the full but really I look on it more as a challenge than a pleasure!

Any advice appreciated!
