The Walk 2012 Sound Diary

During the London 2012 Olympic Games, Mark Stanley and Felicity Ford walked 187 miles between the Olympic Sailing Centre in Portland, Dorset, and the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London. The journey took 12 days to complete with each day involving between 10 – 18 miles of walking. The purpose for the walk was to establish a long-distance path linking two major sites connected with the Olympic Games, and to personally undertake a fitness challenge during them.

Throughout the walk, Felicity created many recordings on her Edirol R-09, documenting the experience in sound. The collected sounds will be presented here, throughout the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
