Events 2010

Every year I set out to do at least one race or event for charity, this year I have been talked into more than one, but I am aiming to only raise money for one of the charities that organise these events and enter the others by paying a fee for entry.

Anyway the objectives I have set this year are to compete in the events listed below and to raise money for CLIC Sargent Cancer Care who organise the 70 Wild Miles event.

I will be tracking my progress in training for these events and how I do in them on this page, and hopefully some of you who drop by will be generous enough to leave a donation at my just giving page, by clicking on the left or below.

The Etape Caledonia is an 81 mile cycle challenge taking place on traffic-free roads in the stunning scenery of Highland Perthshire.

The event is to be held on 16th May 2010 and is expecting close to 5000 competitors. As well as contending with the 81 miles (130kM) in distance there is also a total ascent of 1,949m to keep the legs working on this course.

70 Wild Miles is a triathlon consisting of a 47 mile cycle, 10 mile canoe and a 13 mile run. It is not a race as such, the real purpose being to assist in the fight against Cancer.

The course starts from the White Corries ski center in Glen Coe with competitors cycling to Taynuilt, from here it is a paddle up Loch Etive with the final section being a run back to Glen Coe and the finish line.

The Survival is a friendly event based on an orienteering course of about 26 miles to be completed within the 12-hour time limit. There will be a series of checkpoints identified by a grid reference and description. Your aim is to visit each checkpoint in the order given on the route card. This event is organised by Cleveland Search and Rescue Team.
