Hampered by thirst and the almost unbearable burden of the One Ring itself, Frodo and Sam reach Mordor in the company of the wicked and duplicitous Gollum. Will they succeed in destroying the One Ring? Michael and I followed Frodo and Sam’s journey down the 282mi (454km) route over the wasteland of Mordor and completed the quest by throwing the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom.

It’s been fun doing the challenges with a partner… they finish much quicker with help!
