Club Records

While we're certainly not the most competitive club, occasionally there are achievements or events worth making a note of. What follows is a collection of some of those, compiled from recent memory.


Best weather

Cornwall 2018

Sunburn all round from the summer camping trip to Penwith.

Boggiest walk

Byron's Bog Walk, Snowdonia 2017

A very soggy walk around the reservoir north of Capel Curig.

Largest puddle

Pangbourne Day Walk - February 2020

It was referred to as Death Puddle, we knew what we were signing up for.


Longest walk in a day

Farley Mount (67km) - Nicholas

Nicholas's epic solo walk during lockdown eclipses everything but his 95k overnight walk the year before.

Most calories consumed in a single meal

5400 kcal - ?

Probably the most valued award in SUHC, prospective record breakers must be witnessed to consume their calories within a single pub visit.

Most SUHC related group chats

Serena

This award goes to the person who has ended up in the most online group chats related to SUHC. A niche award, but one that reflects their organisational abilities.


Wettest walk

Isle of Wight 2019

Nothing has come close, it was a deluge.

Best lunch spot

Carn Beag Dearg/ Ben Nevis North Face

On the CMD Arete route, Scotland 2019.

Least bridge like bridge

Steall Falls Cable Bridge

It wouldn't be too difficult to build a proper bridge, but where would the fun be in that?


Least appealing bunkhouse

Bryn Tyrch Bunkbarn

It's a barn, definitely a barn. (This photo is a publicity photo from after it was redone).

Best Spoons

The Imperial - Exeter

Is it too glamourous for a Spoons? Either way, the perfect stop off on a South West trip.

Windiest walk

Beinn na Lap - Corrour Winter Trip

Estimated to be 80mph gusts - making this probably the windiest we've seen.


Lowest walk atttendance

Chichester Mar 2015 - 3

This record is solely for normal term time official day walks. This particular walk was the same weekend as the Chase walk which many club regulars were taking part in.

Highest walk attendance

Isle of Wight 2018 - 155

The IOW walk at the beginning of the year has always been popular - so much so that it's been run as the same route every year since at least the late 80s. The 2018 edition didn't start off with great weather, but attracted many, many freshers.
