Munros 4 MND: 4 in 24
Sunday 23 July 2023
Our original "Munros 4 MND" challenge enabled us to raise money to help fight MND whilst doing something that was such a big part of Mum and Dad's lives. The Scottish hills have now become a very special place for the whole family. With this in mind, we wanted to come up with a way we could continue to fundraise whilst keeping this connection to Dad and the Munros!
So here it is:
In July 2023, Paul, Matt, Paul's brother-in-law Nick, and good friend Nathan are going to attempt to climb all four of the most northerly Scottish Munros in 24 hours:
Ben Hope, 927m
Ben Klibreck, 962m
Ben More Assynt, 998m
These four remote mountains are located in the northern reaches of the Scottish Highlands, and together make up "Section 16" of the Munros. The challenge will see us attempt to hike 40km, ascend 3,000m in height, and travel the distance between the Munros, all within 24 hours! We have an amazing support crew in place who will be on hand to help with the driving and to keep us topped up with supplies.
As far as we are aware this has never been attempted before!
We will be starting and finishing our challenge at the same location, near the village of Lairg. The timer will only stop once we make it back to the start point... hopefully less than 24 hours after we set off.
Wish us luck!
