Wow, how you can easily underestimate the difficulty of walking 100km. Its doesn't sound too hard, especially compared to what we usually endure, but this event really tested us both physically and mentally. To be honest, the closer we were getting to the date, the more I just wanted it to be finished, especially as the whole team were coming back from sort of injury or major operation. Training had been minimal and of course this is something that we would not normally do (no obstacles to break up the course).
The main difference apart from being a walk is that you had to complete this as a team of four and not as individuals, you also had to raise a minimum amount of money that went to Oxfam in order to participate.
