FOUR Rockingham residents will be retracing the footsteps of pilgrims next month.

Sharyn and Mac McCaskey and Alan and Davina Reid are preparing for the Camino de Santiago, a spiritual journey that pilgrims of all faiths and backgrounds have traversed for more than 1000 years.

The McCaskeys and Reids will traverse about 244km of the Camino route, which covers 800km through northern Spanish countryside.

While many take the route to seek penance and enlightenment, the Rockingham trekkers are taking the journey out of a sense of adventure.

Mrs McCaskey was inspired to do the trip after seeing the move The Way.

Mrs Reid has been walking 10km to 15km a day in preparation for the trek, in two weeks time.
