About Me

Winter Hill ,Horwich, UK
About Me Jake ,I am 11 years old and have Autism. This Blog is about what I can do not what I cannot,sometimes people think I cannot because I have autism ,this blog is about challenging that!I have lots of special interests, in particular running, exploring and this blog shows a small amount of what I get up to! Please be careful as some of activities I do may look easy are not , I know Winter Hill very well I can get off safely and know what to do when the weather closes in ,to keep myself safe I use high performance clothing and footwear,waterproof/ breathable/reflective/thermal layers. in layers so I keep warm and dry , I take my safety seriously and I always take care when out exploring. My dad is very experienced on the fells he is teaching me how to keep safe.I can use a map and compass, the hills can be windy , very cold, be wet , misty and boggy. STAY SAFE! check out under my link's for advice on safety from Bowland and Pennine Mountain rescue. Try my Winter Hill Challenge

Coal pit road to counting hill winter hill mast to two lads to Wallsuches

This was a night time run in poor weather, but at least it was not cold tonight !
it is a recreation of my birthday run !

 Night time view towards Bolton and Manchester from Coal pit road

 I use hi viz clothing to keep my self safe , I have additional safety equipment,  i have a back up light plus spare batteries,  please be careful the route was mostly in the mist ,foggy and rain ! I ran in heavy weight kit tonight because i was going to spend time going through the mud and I am not used to the hills so it was going to take longer to run this , we did around 5 miles  in just over a hour !
