Ben Nevis Challenge

On 23rd August we'll hike up Ben Nevis again this year - bear costumes optional. Exact starting time still to be confirmed, I am waiting on the guide to get back to me, but I would think about 8am. Please let me know if you would like a lift, there are still spaces in our cars driving up from Drymen. 

We will have a professional guide with us, Richard Kermode ( will be guiding us. There's a registration fee of £10 to help cover the cost of the guide. 

You are encouraged to raise as much sponsorship as possible. I have set up a JustGiving team page again, so you can all raise sponsorship on your own JustGiving page and link it to the team page Just click on "join the team" above the team members' names. That will send me an email to approve you.

The photo was taken in 2012 on top of Ben Nevis - we are hoping for clearer weather in August! :-)

    I would love to come to this event as I love Ben Nevis but it is my partner and I's 2 year anniversary that day so will have to give it a miss. Any other events before that I will be there! :)
