A group of Reading FC podcast presenters completed a gruelling 120 mile walk to Derby for charity, even after Reading's trip to Pride Park was postponed.

Despite the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak halting football, the presenters of the 106Chat podcast completed the journey from Berkshire to Derbyshire for a number of charities.

The group of friends had begun planning the walk last summer, aiming to link their support for Reading FC to raising money for charities that were all close to their hearts.

They agreed to attend a Saturday home game and walk to the following Tuesday night away game.

Once the fixture list came out, the Derby County fixture was pencilled into the calendar and training began.

“It’s something that we have collectively been putting a lot of work into for near enough a year now.

“From constant preparatory training walks that have seen us cover routes such as Maidenhead through to Reading, to walks from ground-to-ground across the entirety of London, we’re making sure that this is something we’ll all be more than prepared for come the game against Stoke City in March.

“From day one it was definitely a wise move to not take the Thames path to Wallingford which had flooded, but we were absolutely drenched on day 2, regardless.

“We really struggled on day 3 and had reached our hotel in Nuneaton at 8.30pm, which is quite a bit later than initially hoped.

"We stuck the TV on upon arrival and a Cancer Research advertisement was on - this really reminded us of why we were doing the walk, and was a bit of an emotional moment when it had popped up. We truly believe it kept us going for the final day.”

The group are still taking donations for the walk at virginmoneygiving.com/106Chat.
