Hi all,

A group of friends (12 in all) are embarking on a two day hike challenge covering around 60 miles, with a sleepover in a lodge. Myself and another have offered to provide support services by way of transport, provisions at stop offs, general support and well being througout.

I am taking the opportunity to go on a walkers first aid course refresher etc, but do any of you have any tips and advice on what an excellent support team might comprise, what I should take/provide to keep morale going etc etc. I have tried looking on various sites, but other than first aid they don't really discuss non-walking volunteer suporters.

Ooh, sorry just noticed your answer, thanks.

Peak District at the end of July.
Ok. I would be taking a lot of bottled water and some factor 50 sun block. A change of socks for each walker (bliss when your half way round). If you can find someone with a camping fridge (12v) then maybe some ice creams. Possibly a fresh t-shirt per day for half way. Possibly some knee supports and a few chocolate bars / bananas.
There's nothing better than a hearty meal being ready at the end of the walk (a big pan of stew or some pasta) to give them energy the day after.
