We have listened to suggestions from many that the challenge would be improved if there was a category which allowed you to complete each mountain stage in your own time period over the course of a few weeks or months. As the main purpose of the challenge is to allow climbers to do something worthwhile whilst raising funds for Mountain Rescue in Scotland, we were only too happy to include this category in the challenge.
We raised over £2500.00 last year, we are hoping to double that this year, but to do that we need lots more people to take part. We hope that this new category will open the challenge up a bit more people to compete.
And the 36 hour element is still to be achieved, would you like to be the first? Register with us at www.bighex.org and set a date for 2014.
