Teams of tenacious walkers are being sought to hit the hills and take part in overnight endurance events taking place in some of the UK's greatest walking regions. The PLOD series raises funds for children’s charity Action Medical Research with events taking place next summer in a choice of five stunning UK locations – on either the Cotswold Way, South Downs Way or following sections of the Rutland Round, in England; in the Trossachs National Park in Scotland or in Northern Ireland's beautiful Mourne Mountains (see listing for full details).
We are often asked questions about our charity, such as how to take part in an event, what research we are currently funding, whether we have any case studies available and which celebrities we work with. Take a look at our FAQ page for the answers to your journalist questions.
