Molecular-Scale Engineering students raising money for Oxfam

Molecular-Scale Engineering students Will Morton, Andy Lee and several others are walking 100km at the end of May to raise money for the charity Oxfam. The students are required to walk the 100km (that's 62 miles) within 30 hours. It's a non-stop hike, the equivalent distance of two and a half marathons back-to-back, and climbing the equivalent of Ben Nevis and Snowden.

Will at the team are training every week building up to the event with regular gym sessions and long walks almost every weekend. Last weekend they did 35km in the Lake district in about 9 hours and they're planning on walking 40km this weekend.
